THE disciples who were present at the Supper saw and heard
Jesus Christ making eucharist to the Father over the bread and the cup.
They were witnesses of the intercourse between the Eternal Son and his
Eternal Father. Mortal ears and eyes at that moment perceived the
movement of speech and love which passes in the heart of the Godhead; human
minds entered into that converse of the Divine Persons which is the life
and happiness of the Blessed Trinity. Belief in the Trinity is not
a distant speculation; the Trinity is that blessed family into which we
are adopted. God has asked us into his house, he has spread his table
before us, he has set out bread and wine. We are made one body with
the Son of God, and in him converse with the Eternal Father, through the
indwelling of the Holy Ghost.
