Eucharist/Communion

On the night he was betrayed, he took bread and gave you thanks and praise.
He broke the bread, gave it to his disciples and said:
Take this all of you and eat it:
this is my body which will be given up for you.

The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life."  Vatican II document Lumen Gentium

Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ's Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.
