The “Breaking of the Bread” as Fourfold Action of the Eucharist
The Emmaus story invites to recognize the Risen Christ in the “breaking of the bread” today with our own eyes of faith. The “breaking of the bread” in the celebration of every Eucharist, is actually now a fourfold action: taking the bread (offertory), blessing (Eucharistic prayer), breaking (rite itself of the breaking the bread) and sharing (communion) of the consecrated bread (Christ’s Body) and the cup of consecrated wine (Christ’s Blood).
