The disciples on their way to Emmaus recognized the Risen Christ in the breaking of the bread (Luke 24:13-35). This large bronze plaque depicts with great detail and beauty their moment of recognition. Two millennia later, with eyes of faith we are still recognizing the Risen One in every Eucharist, in the “breaking of the bread.” This plaque then will be an especially meaningful gift for all completing RCIA or receiving their first communion and confirmation. Also a wonderful wedding or housewarming gift to grace any dining room!
A Beautiful Solid Bronze Plaque – A Most Fitting Ordination Gift!
This plaque measures 7 inches long and 5.9 inches wide. There is a notch on the back to allow for easy hanging on the wall in one’s home or office. This solid bronze plaque was conceived and cast in Germany by a world-renowned master goldsmith. This plaque is indeed a most fitting gift for all ordained ministers and priests who will preside at the “Breaking of the Bread” in the Eucharist!
The “Breaking of the Bread” is the Eucharist
The celebration of the Eucharist – the “Breaking of the Bread” – creates communion in the Risen Christ and incorporates each of us as members into the Church, the Body of Christ. The celebration of every Eucharist is a fourfold action of taking, blessing, breaking and sharing. This plaque then is a most fitting gift for each member of Christ’s Body now being initiated and incorporated into the Body of Christ through the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and first communion.
