Our Diocese

Living Eucharist

Sunday Mass is the most important resource for faithful Christian living.

It is important that we are atuned to Christ's presence and action in the Mass. Careful preparation of ourselves for the celebration, and continuing to ponder the things of the celebration in our heart makes all the difference.

Two resources are recommended for the use of all members of the assembly - minsters and congregation alike.

  • The first is a resource which is principally intended for children and their families, and is made available through schools. The Wednesday Word has proved remarkably succesful in helping children 'hear' the word of God and for families to talk about their faith and together prepare for Mass. General details are available here. An additional resource, which may prove useful for parishes whose schools and children are already using Wednesday Word, is available here.

  • The second is a daily blog, which offers two sets of postings. The first, on Monday to Wednesday, postings under the title, 'Taste and See', which encourage us to reflect on our experience of Sunday's Mass, and continue our learning from that. The second, on Thursday to Sunday, posted under the title 'Speak Lord' presents the readings and psalm of the Liturgy of the Word in turn, and helps us prepare for the coming celebration of Mass. The easiest way of accessing these daily postings is to subscribe to the blog - livingeucharist.wordpress.com. (Press the 'follow' button on the bottom right of the screen when you access the blog).That way you receive an e-mail as each daily posting is made. Alternatively you can access the blog directly at any time.
