Remembrance and Resurrection

In the Eucharist indeed, we are engaged in a different, but related kind of remembrance.  As with 9/11 we are remembering a trauma, and we are striving to remember it well.  For the crucifixion of Jesus is an act of terror that left the first witnesses traumatized—at least till Easter Day.  And, whenever we gather at our Lord ’s table, his resurrection is made present to us in all its life-giving power.
