The Eucharist by Alexander Schmemann – finished reading it

Schmemann’s main point, in my reading of the book, is this: The Eucharist is the entire service, the whole of the Liturgy.

The Eucharist

The image of the cross immediately brings to mind that sacrifice. That symbol has been imbued with a power beyond mere words. Likewise the bread and wine of communion have been imbued with power. Jesus said we must eat his flesh and drink his blood.

The Eucharist

A modern American low church, nondenominational experience seems like a bland saltine cracker compared to the majestic cake of ancient rites and liturgy.
