We do not partake of the holy blood of the Christ in order to state that we are willing to suffer like Him, for this is a misunderstanding of his state upon the cross. The Christ Messiah is the anointed one, anointed by God with the Holy Spirit. His was a miraculous state of being, transcendent over the material plane where the physical body has its place. In the Celtic Christian tradition it is believed that He transcended pain upon the cross and that His heart exploded in a divine light which poured out upon the whole earth and all its people, and this is why the Celtic Cross has a circle around the heart.
When this happened, His blood itself was transformed into a pure, clean, clear liquid, full of the divine energy of love. The Magdalene tradition teaches that several drops of it were caught by Myriam of Magdala under the cross and preserved in the Holy Grail which was then taken to Glastonbury. Through her love and faith and patient work, the Eucharist became available to churches all over the Earth.
The blood of the Christ Messiah, who is the one anointed with God’s love, becomes in itself worthy of being an anointment bestowed upon us by grace. It is not that we are required to state that we will suffer. It is the opposite, that we are permitted to directly ingest grace and unconditional love. We are freely given the fruit of his victory, we are freely given the holy blood of divine love and light to uplift us and bring the peace born of forgiveness. May we always forgive ourselves and others. Forgiveness is not condonement, it in fact liberates us to be more active in solving the problem. Forgiveness is not weakness, it is in fact an act of great strength of character. Forgiveness is not giving in to the sin, it is in fact transforming the sin into love as the light of grace falls upon the heart of even the murderer, whilst as the same time strongly protecting his victim.
We ourselves would not be able to be in bliss upon the cross, we would simply perish, so therefore this sacrifice is not required of us. We are to take up our own small cross, which is not of the magnitude of his but which is an intention to stand up for truth and righteousness, to protect the victim and have courage for God, though we might be belittled or ridiculed.
The cross is not a place of suffering or a message to Christians that they must suffer like the Christ. The cross is a place of anointment, where the Holy Spirit filled Him and He transcended, becoming full of the power of love. When we partake of the Holy Eucharist, we are not partaking of pain and suffering. We are permitted to directly ingest the pure, clear, holy blood of life and love, that we might be uplifted by our Teacher and Friend, the Lord Jesus, Isha Natha, whose Name is the Amen, Immanuel, Aum, Aumen-el, and in this we are uplifted for all time to come.
