Pew Leaflet Sunday 15 April 2018


From Altar to Table

We see in today’s gospel the risen Christ ask for something to eat and he eats what is prepared for him as a sign that he is not an apparition. He’s not a ghost or something the disciples imagined. He is truly present! He proves this at an ordinary dinner table.

What does this mean, then, about our own dinner tables? If the risen Christ has shown himself not only at the altar in the Eucharist but also in such ordinary places as a home dinner table, should we not treat the table wherever we eat as sacred spaces as well? Whenever we prepare food and place it before someone to eat in our homes, do we see Christ present there, too?

This Easter season, honour the tables where you eat and the opportunity to see Christ present there. Use a tablecloth on your kitchen or dining table if you don’t already use one. Every time you eat, know that Christ is there with you. (Living Liturgy 2018; p113)
