1st Station - The Institution of the Eucharist

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
Because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

Reading: 1 Cor 11:23-26

For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

Silent Reflection

Lord Jesus, it was not enough for you to become one of us
when you took flesh and came to share our destiny.
In your love for us you did even more;
you made yourself brad and wine, to be our food,
our constant companion and our model.

(Brief pause)

Teach us dear lord, to become like you—bread and wine,
offered in sacrifice to God and in humble service to our neighbor.
Help us to be everything to all, till I come to share the food of eternal life,
forever and ever.

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory…
