RE: [Celt] receiving Holy Communion
- Also, Thom... the facts do not suggest that it was a simple hand breaking of bread either.This is one fo those few places where I am unstintingly uncompromising. The Last Supper was a seder, there was a liturgy and procedure to follow, and tehre is no reason to think it was done in some strange way outside of the Jewish tradition. I have read Bp. Ware's writings suggesting that it was nota seder, and I found the points to be "blinded by partsinship" at best, and intellectually dishonest at worst. I will never be convinced that when Christ "broke bread and gave it to his disciples" that he did anything other than just that, modern liturgucal apologetics notwithstanding.thom

Since it would have to be either Chad or myself who "misinterpreted"
Ross' posting, here is the offending Easter day paragraph..
>> No spears and spoons for me: when the priest breaks the bread with
his hands, he is doing what Jesus did - he broke the bread, he didn't
grab a knife or spear. Similarly, they shared the common cip, they
did not get out spoons and treat the wine as soup.<<
To "treat the wine as soup" is disrespectful in my book.
