I Don't "Say Mass"!!!

I rather "serve the Liturgy".  To be able to be of service to God's people as the unworthy servant to feed those who hunger for heavenly food. As one who enters into the "the source and summit" I liken these summer days of Ordinary Time as time to reflect and enter the liturgy more intimately.  Most gospels during the summer teach us discipleship in our daily lives.  Even the most simple daily mass invites us to enter this most divine and supernatural experience.  Can we live what we believe and pray? How many of us accept the truth that Christ asks us to be bound to him in charity?  Perhaps this prayer before any daily decision we make may offer guidance:

"May this divine sacrifice we have offered and received
fill us with life, O Lord, we pray,
so that, bound to you in lasting charity,
we may bear fruit that lasts for ever.
Through Christ our Lord."  
Prayer after Communion, 13 Sunday in Ordinary Time. Roman Missal-third edition

If Jesus in the Eucharist is the pinnacle of this source and summit, the liturgy, then God allow me to serve what you have deigned holy for your holy people. That is charity par excellence; Christ.
