RE - Unity

The Communion Rite focuses on peace, unity and forgiveness. The Christian family comes to the Lord’s table united in love of Jesus and of one another. They pray the ‘Our Father’ between the Eucharistic prayer and the giving of Holy Communion. It sums up everyone’s prayers and hopes. It is addressed to ‘Our Father’, not ‘my Father’, so it unites everybody into the love of the Father. It was the prayer that Jesus himself gave us. The disciples asked Jesus for help to pray and he gave them that prayer. It is the prayer which unites all Christians, whatever their denomination.
The first part of this prayer is addressed to God: honouring and longing for the coming of God.
The second part asks for our needs: food, forgiveness, avoidance of difficulty.
The last part applies to our daily lives: forgiving others.


Let's read The Lord's Prayer


The Lord's Prayer


Our Father, Who art in heaven,

hallowed be Thy name;

Thy kingdom come;

Thy will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil



Some questions to think about

Q Why do you think the Christian family says this prayer before receiving Jesus in Holy Communion?
Q What challenges you most in the prayer and why?


Task 1


Write out The Lords Prayer and create illustrations around it to show what it means and represents.


After the Our Father, and before the Christian family receive Jesus in communion, everyone prays for peace and unity. The priest says:
Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles: Peace I leave you, my peace I give you, look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church, and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will. Who live and reign for ever and ever. The people answer, AMEN!
Then the priest says, “Peace be with you,” and invites everyone to share the sign of peace. The people then greet one another as friends of Jesus. They say to one another, “Peace be with you”, “The peace of Christ” or just “Peace” as they make a gesture of friendship e.g. shaking hands. They are sharing with one another the gift of peace and unity which Jesus gave to his followers. They are using the words with which Jesus greeted his friends after the Resurrection, ‘Peace be with you’.


Some questions to think about


Q How do you think this prayer might reassure Christians?
Q Why do you think the prayer for peace and the Sign of Peace come before Communion?
Q What are the challenges and opportunities offered by making the Sign of Peace?


After the Sign of Peace everyone says or sings the prayer:
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.
The priest prepares to receive Jesus in Holy Communion with a prayer. He then takes the host and, holding it up, says,
“Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.”
(Jesus is often referred to as a Lamb. In Jesus’ day a lamb was always sacrificed in the Temple at the Feast of the Passover.)
The people reply, praying,
“Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.”
(‘Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof’, is a reference to the story of the Centurion’s servant in Luke’s Gospel (Luke 7:6. ‘Entering under my roof’ means ‘entering my house’.)
The priest receives the Body and Blood of Christ and then the people process to the altar. The priest or the Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion raises the host to show to each person saying, “The Body of Christ.” The same is done with the chalice saying, “The Blood of Christ.” (The chalice is not always given). Each person responds, “Amen.” Amen means ‘I agree’.
This is a most solemn moment. Christ is really present in the form of bread and wine, in the same way he gave himself to the disciples at the Last Supper, saying, ‘This is my body, this is my blood’. When Christians receive Christ in Holy Communion, not only do they become one with him, in communion, but also with those whom Christ loves - all people.


Task 2
