Adding some drama

One of the suggested activities for this week’s home lesson on Celebrating the Real Presence is to open your Bibles to Luke’s description of the Last Supper and act it out.  While you possibly do not have all 13 cast members, you probably do have someone who can play the central part of Christ and maybe 2 or 3 others to represent the Apostles.  Simple costumes can complete the look and you might get some inspiration from the most famous representation of the event.

It’s almost always a good idea to incorporate a snack into your lesson time and this one has the built in suggestion of grape juice and bread (the recipe in the lesson is a good choice).

This is also a great time to talk about the differences between regular bread and that which is used for Holy Communion.  The recipe in the lesson has all sorts of ingredients to improve the taste and texture, but in order for bread to be used at Communion, Church law stipulates that it only contains the two essential ingredients: wheat flour and water to hold it together.  Anything else would not be valid for use at Mass.
