HOLY EUCHARIST

"This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.”
~Luke 22:19b-20
The Eucharist is:
  • eucharist.jpgthe very body which Jesus gave up on the cross and the very blood which Jesus poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins
  • the source and summit of the Christian life
  • the efficacious sign and sublime cause of that communion in the divine life and that unity of the People of God by which the Church is kept in being
  • both a meal and a sacrifice
~Catechism of the Catholic Church, CCC 1324, 1325,1365, 1340

"I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever…For my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him."
~ John 6:51, 55-56
