Lord‘s supper is an age old Christian ritual. It is celebrated in the remembrance of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ called his disciple and broke the loaf of bread to proclaim that that bread was his body; then he poured wine in the glass of disciples and told his followers that that was his blood. One needs to delve deeper to understand the message behind this act of Jesus. The tradition is not practised in home. Bread and cup communion is celebrated in church where people of every class come and sit together to have supper. Rich or poor, everyone has equal value in Jesus’ eyes. But the society overlooks the true teachings of Jesus and lives a life of selfishness. Jesus through this ritual tried to show the society the difference between living a life of human and animal. If humans start living like an animal i.e. to live only for yourself, then it is worthless to have a human life.
