Laudato Si’ Mysticism 11
The Eucharist is embedded in history: it stretches all the way back to the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago and also points forward to the divinisation of all things, the great cosmic banquet, when everything will rejoice together.
So the Pope can say
‘The Eucharist joins heaven and earth; it embraces and penetrates all creation. In the bread of the Eucharist, creation is projected towards divinisation, towards the holy wedding feast, towards unification with the Creator himself’ (236).
