Our Lord provides a future for his people. It is a future of victory and gigantic triumph. Our Lord is risen, so that He might initiate the plans of the Father to bring all things under his feet.
The Son brings glory to himself even in this simple meal. He is the alpha and omega of joy, because he endured the alpha and omega of death. And in his resurrection, we who are united to Jesus, journey with him in the alpha of his reign to the omega of his final victory over death. Thanks be to God!
