The Eucharist As Physical Prayer

Good friend and fellow blogger Ryan Flanigan (ReformWorship) put me on to this below from Notre Dame.

I appreciate the sacramental posture toward prayer in this. No matter your tradition, read it through that lens.

From Ryan: “Notre Dame’s Oblation blog just began a series today on “Ceaseless Prayer.” ¬†We are a people who “belong to the day” as we await “the Day of the Lord” (1 Thes. 5).

Interestingly, according to the author, this exhortation to all Christians is rooted in the “world-affirming” and “world-ending” liturgical expressions of the Eucharist.
Very interesting read–recovering the absolutely essential eschatological dimension of the Eucharist that launches us into lives of ceaseless prayer.”
