What We Do as Catholics

About the Mass: The Institution Narrative

04-15-2018Fr. Joe Fessenden

Before we dive into the individual Eucharistic Prayers, I want to look at the middle portion that all of them have in common, the institution narrative, the consecration when the bread and wine truly become the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ.

From there, the Canon proceeds into the Institution Narrative and the Consecration. Nicholas Gihr, in his book The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, poetically describes this moment of the Mass:
