Participation in the Holy Eucharist by all Catholics is a wonderful privilege, only available to us because we are made in the image of God and have been incorporated into His Body by His Son. It is a special privilege to be able to assist in the Eucharistic celebration as server, minister of communion, reader, presenter of gifts or minister of hospitality in the Shrine. Acceptance of these tasks brings graces which we should reflect in the way we live. An important part of the duties is our prayerful preparation.
