Work of Human Hands – Eucharist: The Basic Spirituality

We only need to look across this world at the current famine in Africa to remember that such growth is not to be taken for granted. Both the bread and the wine are also the work of human hands , and are being offered to him. In one sense, this is also from God. Yet it is also from us… humans took that grain of wheat that grew from the earth, planted it, cultivated it, harvested it, threshed it, milled it, formed dough from it, and baked it into bread.
Now we offer him the fruit of our labors, although we would have nothing to offer apart from his goodness.

Now, in expectation, we speak of what this bread and wine will become: the bread of life and our spiritual drink. God will take this thing that we offer and will transform it yet again, this time into something that we could never make it: the body and blood of Christ. So, in this Berakhah, we bless the Lord for 3 graces: Giving us this earth and bringing forth growth from it. Giving us the ability to share his creative work, transforming this creation in so many ways.
Giving us hope that the fruit of our work, when offered to God, is actually eternally significant.

By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. They are bakers. They are vintners.
They are those who make whatever is used to produce the wheat and grapes, the bread and the wine. I think about and pray for the many hands that in some way produced what will become the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Perhaps they had no idea where their product would end up. Maybe they would be honored knowing their handiwork would be used to worship Almighty God.

Perhaps not. Who crafted the utensils I use to eat my meals? How many hands worked to make the car I drive? What seamstress made the coat that keeps me warm? I could go on and on. Currently my husband and I are having a new house built.
