#20: Eucharist, Christ the King

A well-known theologian, Father Hans Urs von Balthasar, said, “We must make every effort to arouse the sense of community within the liturgy . . . enlarging the scope of prayer, so often, narrow and selfish, to embrace the concerns of the whole Church and, indeed – as in the presence of the Eucharistic Lord: “Where two or three are gathered together . . . “ – that is, where individuals, in profound faith and obedience, desire to be and to realize the Church – there I am in the midst of you.”
