To better understand today's second reading, check out the passage immediately before it (1 Cor 11:17-22). Paul is hopping mad! The Corinthians are holding the Eucharistic Celebration as part of a larger meal in the houses of wealthier Roman families. The wealthier got the better seats, and the better food; the poor received lower places and poorer food - some no food at all.
No wonder Paul was angry. We are all the Body of Christ. There is no distinction. All are welcome at the Table of the Lord.BACK TO LIST
