MASS GUIDE FOR CHILDREN - 11
Now comes the most special part of the Mass, when the bread and the wine will be changed into the true Body and Blood of Jesus.
The priest will make the sign of the cross over the bread and wine and repeat the words that Jesus said at the Last Supper when He said, "This is my Body," and "This is my Blood." Jesus then said, "Do this in memory of me." And so we obey Jesus' command and we do this at every Mass.
When the priest lifts up the Sacred Host and the Sacred Chalice, let us lift up to God the Father, along with Jesus, our own little selves, with all of our little sacrifices and gifts of love. Just as the little white Host is small, we too are small and humble. But when we are one with Jesus all our gifts to God are beautiful to Him.
