Eucharist as a Celebration of Forgiveness

Eucharist as a Celebration of Forgiveness will be divided into four sections:1. Problem: tracking how we came to the "exclusive" and "need for holiness" criterion for admission to the Eucharistic table. This must begin with 1 Cor 11, and then see where it goes from there - historically and theologically. Here a note on its eventual application to marriage can be part of the material covered (10,000 words)2. tracking how we came to the "exclusive" and "need for holiness" criterion for admission to the Eucharistic table. This would be a condensation of the detailed work I do in A Body Broken (10,000 words).3. The history and theology of legitimate "exclusion" from the Eucharistic table. This needs to be covered, as from the second century it is practised, and is probably already there in 1 Cor 5 (the incestuous man). The motive for this, however, is always the denial of God, Christ, and/or Church. This position has a legitimate theological correctness, and needs to be covered. I have a few pages on it in the final chapter of Body Broken that call for expansion - historically and theologically. People (starting with the Bishops) need to know what they mean when they use the word "doctrine" (8000 words).4. A Theology of Eucharist as forgiveness and its ethical consequences. Again, marriage and other sexuality questions can be part of the debate ... as they worry the USA Bishops so much (but not Pope Francis!)
