Take and eat, take and eat. This is my body given up for you.Take and drink, take and drink. This is my blood given up for you.This is the refrain from Michael Joncas’s (b. 1951) and James Quinn’s SJ (b.1919) beautiful hymn, Take and Eat, written in 1989 to a tune by Joncas. The song was sung during communion at my parish Mass recently, as people took up the invitation to take and eat of the body of Christ and to take and drink of his blood.
