Narrative of the Institution: The
words of institution are part of the Eucharistic prayer, which is a consecratory, thanksgiving prayer of praise. All
that God has accomplished in creation and salvation
history is fulfilled, signified, and made present in the
person of the crucified and risen Christ. Christ’s
words area promise and through the power of the
Holy Spirit they accomplish what they signify: his
Eucharistic body and blood, his real presence with
all the riches of the Kingdom.
Historical Survey: The words of institution or consecration are essential to the Eucharistic prayer. Their
ancient liturgical usage is already reflected in the
scriptural accounts of the Last Supper, which borrowed the phrasing of these words from actual Eucharistic celebrations of the apostolic church. The
elevation of the host at the institution narrative dates
from the early thirteenth century, a time when the
faithful communicated but rarely and consequently
took great satisfaction seeing the consecrated bread.
The elevation of consecration appeared in the late
fourteenth century. They gained universal acceptance only with the Missal of Pius V in 1570. All
present Rom Eucharistic prayers have the same
words of institution.
Pope Benedict XVI, Holy Thursday homily, 2009:
“...breaking the bread is an act of communion, an act
of unity through sharing. Thus, in the act itself, the
intimate nature of the Eucharist is already indicated:
it is agape, it is love made corporal. In the word
“agape” the meanings of Eucharist and love intertwine. In Jesus’ act of breaking the bread, the love
that is shared has attained its most radical form: Jesus allows himself to be broken as living bread. In
the bread that is distributed, we recognize the mystery of the grain of what that dies, and so bears fruit.
We recognize the new multiplication of the loaves,
which derives from the dying of the grain of what and
will continue until the end of the world.”
St. Francis de Sales: Where all are welcome in this community of faith as we strive to see God in all people,
things, events and consent to His will joyously.
In preparation for the Mass on October 26, please
reflect upon the gospel of Matthew 22: 34-40: The
Greatest Commandment.

Gentleness includes true humility that
does not consider itself too good or too
exalted for humble tasks. Gentleness
results from my experience of God’s love for me as I am. When
I am sure of God’s acceptance and love, I can afford to be gentle because when God himself considers me worthwhile, there
is no further need to assert myself or compete with others and
prove my worth. The certainty of God’s love for me frees me
from self-concern and self-absorp on. I can afford to be gentle.
