ABOUT

The Eucharist is one of the seven sacraments, which is the source and summit of the Christian life. The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself.

The Greek noun εὐχαριστία (eucharistia), meaning “thanksgiving”, appears fifteen times in the New Testament. For example, it is found in New Testament accounts of the Last Supper: “For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks (εὐχαριστήσας), he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me”. (1 Corinthians 11:23–24)
