The Language of the Eucharist

The language we learn from listening in at the Eucharist, or which inveigles its way into us from there, is the already spoken and lived experience of the Father and Son. Though it is speech, it is not detachable from them; it is their presence and availability, one word for which is "flesh".
(Douglas Knight, 'Jenson on Time', in 'Trinity, Time, and Church', Colin Gunton (ed), p.78. Italic his.)

Inveigles = lure, entice

Goodness. Your blog has so many interesting stories that I don't think I can finish them in a week! It might take a month if I read them everyday. Lol.
