The Eucharistic Prayer Begins – The Epiclesis

After the Sanctus, we kneel for the Eucharistic Prayer.  The opening of the Eucharistic Prayer is called The Epiclesis, which means “invoke upon”. At this time, the priest asks (or invokes) God the Father to send the Holy Spirit upon the gifts of bread and wine so that they may be made holy and become for us the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ. During this part of the prayer, the priest places his hands, palms down, over the bread and the wine as he says the prayer, then makes a sign of the cross over them with his right hand. Then the priest re-presents what happened on the night of the Last Supper just as Jesus commanded. We shouldn’t confuse “Re-presenting” with “re-enacting”.  As the priest recites the words of the Consecration, we are brought to the presence of the event that Jesus attached to the Last Supper – His Death on the Cross at Calvary.  By using the very words that Jesus did in the Scriptures, the priest has been given the power to bring about through the Holy Spirit the very truth of His words. After the priest elevates the bread and says, “This is My Body, which will be given up for you”, he places it back on the altar and genuflects in adoration of our Lord, now present in the Host. And then he takes up the Cup and says, “This is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant. It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven”. After elevating the Chalice, the priest again bows in adoration. As we continue kneeling in adoration of the Lord, we should remember that Jesus died for each one of us. Many people add a silent prayer of thanks and praise to Jesus during this brief moment. “My Lord and my God” is a prayer of adoration that is offered up by many of the faithful, echoing the words that St. Thomas said in recognizing Jesus’ body after the Resurrection (John 20). “My Lord, shine Your light into the darkness of my soul” is a prayer that St. Augustine used to pray at this time. I’ve heard that some people pray, “Lord, I believe. Help me in my unbelief”. However, whatever you feel like praying is the best prayer to offer up at this time. Immediately after the priest elevates the Host and the Chalice, he follows it up with 6 words that are so important, “Do this in memory of me”.
