A Celtic Advent - Day 23

Today's reflection centres on the Eucharist, and comes with ideas about symbolism that are new to me!

It asserts that in the Passover, the matzoh represents the Messiah, and the cup of wine represents the blood of the sacrificial lamb (being the cup of Redemption not, as I have previously understood being the final cup, the Cup of Blessing). Having done a little bit of checking, I think this is not correct, though may reflect a Messianic reimagining of the symbolism.

Not inspired to write much today, so here's the prayer from the book:

As we draw near to the place of at-one-ment: give us tears to see the wonder of your presence, give us tears to see the wasting of your land, give us tears to see the wounding of your Son, Amen.
