The priest commemorates the names of the dead and living members of His Body in the Proskomide prayers. These are not just names, these are people: each with his or her own beauty, talent, personality, as well as blemishes, uneven growth, and moldy spots on their souls. Jesus is willing to become so very small for us, and even more unfathomably, He is willing to become, us; and so we offer Him the best we have. It can never be perfect but it is all we have to give. In return He joins us to His own Precious, Perfect Body.
