Come and Feast

This month we are exploring the word feast. When feasting comes to mind we usually think about food; gathering around a festive table with friends or family celebrating a holiday, an anniversary, or just a fierce love of tacos. If you take out the implied plenitude associated with this kind of meal, you could imagine the sacrament of communion as a feast. 

We are God’s creatures, created ones, who harbor inside us a Spirit-inspired love of reveling.

Jesus broke bread with the disciples at the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the eve of his crucifixion, and we are told to remember him this way as well. When we are with the body of Christ and eating the body of Christ we, together, feast on him to stave off a form of spiritual hunger.

We can feast on an array of things that deserve it; nature, art, music, science, truth, beauty, and goodness. We are God’s creatures, created ones, who harbor inside us a Spirit-inspired love of reveling. 

God’s other created beings are also designed with this affinity for feasting. Animals jump for joy, roll around in mud, howl at the moon, and glory in their providential meals. In the Word, trees clap their hands, hills rejoice, and rocks cry out as a form of worship.

What kind of feast is set before your soul today? I hope the words offered here will lead you to the table.
