Tap hp chung quanh ban th, Giao Hoi hieu ro hn nguon goc cua mnh va menh lenh a lanh nhan la phai truyen giao. Nh chu e ngay the gii truyen giao nam nay nhan manh, "Thanh The va Truyen Giao" lam thanh mot cap khong the tach ri. Them vao suy t ve moi lien ket gia mau nhiem Thanh The va mau nhiem Giao Hoi, nam nay chung ta con qui chieu mot cach ay y ngha ve c Trinh N Maria, nh viec c hanh ky niem 150 nam cong bo tn ieu Vo Nhiem Nguyen Toi (1854-2004). Chung ta hay chiem ngam Thanh The vi con mat cua c Maria. Cay vao s chuyen cau cua c Trinh N, Giao Hoi trao tang Chua Kito, banh ban n cu o, cho moi dan toc, ngo hau moi ngi nhn nhan va on nhan Ngi nh ang Cu o duy nhat.

2. Tr lai phong Tiec Ly bang tam tr, nam va qua, chnh xac la ngay Th Nam tuan thanh, toi a ky Thong iep Ecclesia de Eucharistia. Gi ay, anh ch em rat than men, toi muon nhac lai mot vai oan trong thong iep nay kha d giup chung ta song ngay The Gii Truyen Giao sap ti vi mot tinh than Thanh The.

"Thanh The xay dng Giao Hoi va Giao Hoi lam nen Thanh The": Toi a viet nh the, ong thi ghi nhan rang s vu cua Giao Hoi tiep noi s vu cua Chua Kito (xem Ga 20,21) va kn muc c sc manh thieng lieng nh viec thong hiep vi Mnh va Mau Ngi. Muc ch cua Thanh The chnh la "hiep nhat nhan loai vi Chua Kito va, trong Ngi, hiep nhat vi Chua Cha va Chua Thanh Than (Ecclesia de Eucharistia). Khi tham d hy te Thanh The, chung ta nhan thc sau sac hn tnh pho quat cua n cu chuoc va, do o, s cap bach cua s vu truyen giao cua Giao Hoi, ma chng trnh, "tap trung vao chnh Chua Kito, la ang ta phai biet, yeu men va noi theo, e, trong Ngi, ta song s song cua Thien Chua Ba Ngoi, va, vi Ngi, ta bien oi lch s, cho en khi lch s c hoan thanh trong thanh Gierusalem tren tri" (nt so 60).

Chung quanh Chua Kito Thanh The, Giao Hoi tang trng nh dan toc, en th va gia nh cua Thien Chua: duy nhat, thanh thien, cong giao va tong truyen. ong thi, Giao Hoi hieu ro hn ac tnh cua mnh la b tch pho quat cua n cu o va la thc tai hu hnh co c cau pham trat. Han nhien "khong mot cong oan Kito hu nao c xay dng neu khong at nen tang va trong tam vao viec c hanh phep Thanh The ch thanh" (nt so 33; xem Presbyterorum Ordinis [Chc vu va i song Linh Muc] so 6). Cuoi moi thanh le, khi chu te giai tan cong oan bang nhng li "Thanh le a xong, anh ch em hay ra i", het moi ngi eu phai cam thay mnh c sai i nh la "ngi tha sai cua Thanh The", loan truyen khap moi moi trng song hong an v ai a lanh nhan. Thc vay, ngi nao gap g Chua Kito trong phep Thanh The khong the nao khong cong bo bang cuoc song mnh tnh yeu hay thng xot cua ang Cu Chuoc.

3. Ngoai ra, e song phep Thanh The, can thiet phai danh nhieu thi gian th phng trc b tch cc thanh, o la kinh nghiem hang ngay cua ban than toi, nh o toi kn muc c sc manh, nguon an ui va s nang (xem Ecclesia de Eucharistia, so 25). Cong ong Vaticano II nhan manh rang phep Thanh The la "nguon mach va chop nh cua i song Kito giao" (Lumen Gentium, so 11), la "nguon mach va chop nh cua viec phuc am hoa" (Presbyterorum Ordinis, so 5). Banh va ru, la hoa qua cong lao cua con ngi, nh quyen nang cua Chua Thanh Than, c bien oi thanh mnh va mau Chua Kito, tr nen bao chng cho mot "tri mi va at mi" (Kh 21,1), c Giao Hoi loan bao trong s vu thng ngay. Trong Chua Kito, ang ma chung ta ton th s hien dien trong mau nhiem Thanh The, Chua Cha a noi len li chung cuoc ve con ngi va lch s con ngi.

Lieu Giao Hoi co the thc hien n goi rieng cua mnh ma khong vun trong mot moi tng quan lien l vi Thanh The, khong nuoi mnh bang lng thc co sc thanh hoa nay, khong at hoat ong truyen giao cua mnh da tren s tr lc khong the thieu nay? e phuc am hoa the gii, can phai co nhng tong o "chuyen gia" ve viec c hanh, ton th va chiem ngam Thanh The.

4. Trong phep Thanh The, chung ta song lai mau nhiem cu chuoc at en chop nh trong hy te cua Chua Kito, nh c lam noi bat trong li truyen phep : "Mnh Thay hien te v anh em...; Mau Thay o ra v anh em" (Lc 22,19-20). Chua Kito a chet cho moi ngi; va, cho moi ngi, Ngi la hong an cu o, ma phep Thanh The lam cho hien dien cach b tch theo dong lch s: "Cac con hay lam viec nay ma nh en Thay" (Lc 22,19). Menh lenh nay c trao cho cac tha tac vien c truyen chc nh b tch Truyen Chc Thanh. Het moi ngi eu c mi en tham d ba tiec va hy te nay, hau nh o ho co the thong phan vao chnh s song cua Chua Kito: "Ai an tht va uong mau toi, th lai trong toi, va toi lai trong ngi ay. Nh Chua Cha la ang hang song a sai toi, va toi song nh Chua Cha the nao, th ke an toi, cung se nh toi ma c song nh vay" (Ga 6,56-57) c nuoi dng bang chnh Chua, cac tn hu hieu c rang ngha vu truyen giao cot tai tr nen "mot le pham ep long Thien Chua, c Thanh Than thanh hoa" (Rm 15,16), e ngay cang tr nen "mot long mot y" (Cv 4,32) va lam chng cho tnh yeu cua Chua en tan cung trai at.

Khi lam mi lai hang ngay hy te ban th, trong cuoc hanh trnh xuyen qua cac the ky, Giao Hoi, oan Dan Thien Chua, trong i cuoc tr lai vinh quang cua Chua Kito. o la ieu cong oan Thanh The, tap hop chung quanh ban th, cong bo sau Truyen Phep. Vi mot long tin luon c khi lai, Giao Hoi tai khang nh c muon cuoc gap g cuoi cung vi ang se en hoan tat ke hoach cu o pho quat cua Ngi.

Nh hoat ong vo hnh nhng hieu qua cua Ngai, Chua Thanh Than hng dan dan Kito giao trong cuoc hanh trnh thieng lieng hang ngay, ma trong o khong the tranh gap phai nhng luc kho khan va trai qua mau nhiem thap gia.

5. Nh toi a nhac en, nam nay se la nam th 150 ky niem viec cong bo tn ieu Vo Nhiem Nguyen Toi. c Maria a c "cu chuoc mot cach rat ky dieu nh cong nghiep cua Con Ngai" (Lumen Gentium so 53). Toi co lu y, trong Thong iep Ecclesia de Eucharistia: "Hng nhn len Me, chung ta biet c nang lc bien oi cua Thanh The. Trong Me, chung ta nhn thay the gii c oi mi trong tnh yeu" (so 62).
