What is the Eucharist?

As a Catholic, the Eucharist is very important in my life. Through the Eucharist I always feel the presence of the Lord within me and His abundance love in a stronger way.

But one might ask… What is the Eucharist? In short, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, explains that the Eucharist is the very sacrifice of the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus which he instituted to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until his return in glory.

Thus, he entrusted to his Church this memorial of his death and Resurrection. It is a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet, in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.

This is why, whenever I receive the Eucharist, I feel the presence of the Lord within me and His abundance love in a stronger way. I hope this encourages you to receive the Eucharist in your life.

God Bless You
