This article reconsiders the table ministry of Jesus through the lens of postcolonial theory. This theoretical exercise is put in dialogue with contemporary Roman Catholic eucharistic practice with people with intellectual disabilities. It is intended as both a contribution to and critique of classical forms of liturgical inquiry. It is further designed to underscore the potential both for the explicit engagement of practical theological frameworks for Roman Catholic theologians while at the same time exemplifying the unique contributions Roman Catholic theologians might make to a wider discourse in practical theology.
