Imagine if we just went up and took communion without attending any of the prayers to go along with it. It seems that we would be partaking of mere, bread and wine. But when I attend the readings and the prayers, and witness that the bread and wine are consecrated and set apart for the purpose of becoming the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is then that I realize the importance of the Sacrament. Not only are the gifts being made holy, but through prayer and through listening to the readings, I am being made holy as well………> - St. Justin Martyr.
