Utterly central to our faith,
the Eucharist gets five lines
repeated, but not so in John.
Only one of the three define
the cup He chose to reach out for:
the cup of Elijah, the cup reserved,
untouchably so in the Paschal meal,
“the” Messiah´s cup, and He picked it up
and said: This in mine !
This is me ! This is who I am, what I am !
This is why I came !
A gesture that, had they understood,
blew the apostles out of the mists.
A gesture way too much to cope with
or to make sense of
that side of the resurrection.
Bread for all ! And this in recognition of
our need of Him in our lives,
not as saints, but as the sinners we are.
