Text Box: Holy Eucharist

The catechism points out that the Holy Eucharist is both a sacrifice and a sacrament.

Text Box: It is at Mass that the change of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ takes place.
It takes place when the priest, making himself the free and willing instrument in the hands of Christ, pronounces over the bread and wine Christ's own words, "This is My Body," and "This is the Chalice of My Blood."

At the Last Supper Jesus changed bread and wine into his own Body and Blood.
At the same time He commanded His apostles to repeat this same sacred action in time to come. "Do this in remembrance of Me," was the solemn charge which Jesus gave to the Apostles. (Referenced from www.beginningCatholic.com)

Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist are sacraments of Christian initiation. They ground the common vocation of all Christ's disciples, a vocation to holiness and to the mission of evangelizing the world. They confer the graces needed for the life according to the Spirit during this life as pilgrims on the march towards the homeland.   (Excerpted from the Catechism of the Catholic Church as  published on www.vatican.va)
