The Eucharist is a procession of the Church following the ascension of Christ.
The Eucharist is a journey of the Church into the dimension of the Kingdom.
The Eucharist is a real separation from the world.
We always want to make Christianity understandable and acceptable to the mythical modern man on the street, and we forget that the Christ of whom we speak is not of this world,
and that after his resurrection, he was not recognized, even by his own disciples.
We do not realize that we never get anywhere because we never leave any place behind us.
Fr. Alexander Schmemann
