The Holy Eucharist 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, our Pasch” (CCC-1324).
Coming to the Eucharist, we eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of man, so that we may have eternal life (John 6.54-55) and show forth the unity of God’s people. By offering ourselves with Christ, we share in the universal sacrifice, i.e. the entire community of the redeemed offered to God their High Priest. We pray for a greater outpouring of the Holy Spirit, so that the whole human race may be brought into the unity of God’s family. (The Rites, vol. 1, p.3).
This sacrament is also called the Lord’s Supper, The Breaking of Bread, The Memorial of the Lord’s Passion and Resurrection, the Holy and Divine Liturgy, the Holy Sacrifice, Holy Communion and the Holy Mass.
First Eucharist is celebrated with children who have reached the age of reason (7 years of age) and have completed a program of immediate sacramental preparation.
