Community, Eucharist, and Spirituality

By Kenan B. Osborne

There can be no discussion of Eucharistic spirituality unless there is first of all, a Eucharistic celebration. Both the spirituality and the celebration, however, are unintelligible unless both exist within the reality of a Christian community. Major questions arise regarding the kind of community needed to ground both the celebration of Eucharist and the development of a Eucharistic spirituality. Through historic observation, Osborne challenges modern assumptions about Eucharistic spirituality. His assessment provides a healthy direction to the emerging 21st century understanding of the Eucharist.
