oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - The 'real presence' of Christ in the Eucharist: A response to African traditional spirituality

 

Abstract

Recently deceased ancestors are the spiritual counterparts ofthe living in traditionalist African communities. Rituals mediate the continuing presence of the deceased. The Last Supper is meant to mediate the continuing presence of the crucified Christ among believers in Christ. If Christ is perceived to be a rather distant authority, however, he cannot become the dominant spiritual force in the life of African Christians. As result, they continue to live in two worlds.
