Holy Communion For The Second Sunday Of Advent

Anastagio Fontebuoni-877555

John the Baptiser cries out, "Prepare the way of the Lord!"

He is talking about an inner preparation, the preparation of the minds, the hearts, the souls of the people of God so that they might be ready to receive into themselves, into their very being, Christ, their saviour. Christ will come again and so we too must prepare ourselves. We do so through baptism, through confession and through the sacrament of holy communion in which we meet Jesus in the bread and the wine, his body and his blood. He will not be a stranger to us and we will not be a stranger to him when we meet him face to face at the time of his return in glory.

At Saint Laika's everyone is welcome to take communion and be in communion, with each other and with God. There are no exceptions.

If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol). How you view the nature of this part of the service is completely up to you.
