In Holy Eucharist we receive the Body and Blood of Christ; the real thing, Jesus. Everything that the Catholic Church strives to be revolves around this core belief that, in Mass, the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We are graced with the opportunity to receive Christ and we are called to be Christ to the world. “Do this in memory of me.”
After the Liturgy of the Word at Mass, we celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist which is the profound celebration connecting us intimately as believers to Christ Jesus so we can, in turn, be empowered to live as Christ calls us.
