Lest you be concerned about doing something sacrilegious, I will consecrate the elements remotely so we can all feel that our Bread and Cup are properly blessed. Here are some suggestions on how you might prepare to participate in Communion at home:
Purchase your own Communion elements – bread, matzah, or crackers; your choice of fruit of the vine.
Elements should not be chosen arbitrarily (baloney and seltzer won’t do!); elements should be consistent with the symbolic foods described in the New Testament.
Consider a special table setting in your home, having a lighted candle as a centerpiece and using a favorite plate and set of cups.
Pray that celebrating Communion in this unusual, relatively isolated fashion will nonetheless strengthen your spiritual connection to Christ and his body, the Church
