Taste and See the Symbols of Our Faith
Taste and See the Symbols of Our Faith

The Altar is the Lord’s Table, at which the sacred banquet of the Eucharist is celebrated.  It is considered the very center of the whole Eucharistic liturgy.  The altar represents Christ himself and the sacrifice he made for us.  It is an eternal symbol of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Baptismal Font, with its clear, living waters, (temporarily drained due to its current malfunction!) is placed at the main entrance of the church as a reminder that we must go through the font of baptism in order to reach the altar of the eucharist. Reach into it and sign yourselfËas you silently remember that you were once signed with the cross and baptized with holy water. Christ dwells in you, you are holy.

The Paschal Candle is the lamp that burns with a living flame. Christ our Light has come into the world to shatter the darkness of sin.  See its flame, feel its warmth.

Come to your pew and genuflect toward the altar as you enter it.  When passing in front of the altar reverence it with a profound bow.

Participate fully in the worship of the Lord, sing full throatily and respond with conviction.

Visit the Blessed Sacrament Chapel and there, in peaceful silence, you will find the Tabernacle where Christ dwells in the consecrated bread.  Genuflect before Christ; pray in contemplative silence.

Remember always that Christ dwells in each member of the assembly.  Take care of one another and we will honor the Lord.   (January 9, 2005)
