This week we discuss Gods love. Through the gift of the Body and Blood of Christ. Fr Ian talks about the thought of earning God's love as a motivation for working harder and digging deeper in life. Alanna reminds everyone that technically you can not earn God's love because He loves us perfectly from eternity and cannot love us any more than He does now. It was an interesting conversation thinking about what motivates people to work hard for their sanctification. We talk about the Priesthood of Melchizedek and the sacrifice of thanksgiving using Bread and Wine that continued through the temple eras of Judaism. We talked about the Jewish concept of remembrance in the Exodus Passover liturgy, that ties into the meaning of Christ's command of the liturgical remembrance of the Eucharistic celebration. And finally we talk about the feeding of the 5,000 as a prefigurement of the Sacrament of the Eucharist, which is also a communal meal.
