E is for: Eucharist

E is indeed for Eucharist

Part of being a Catholic, we believe that at mass the bread and wine turn into the body and blood of Christ. Jesus gave us his body to eat, his blood to drink, so that we the faithful may have everlasting life in him.

Through the Body and Blood of Christ we are nourished by the gift left by Jesus Our Lord. Through eating the bread, and Drinking his blood, we take part in the one action that connects all of us Catholics together. We all share in the Body of Christ.

On the night he was betrayed, Jesus took bread blessed it and gave it to his disciples. He blessed it into becoming his body. He finished the covenant God started with Abraham. The action of the Holy Eucharist is a beautiful action and mystery to indeed take part in.

The beautiful action of the Holy Eucharist is what connects us all over the world. We are united with Christ every time we take part in it. Jesus our God, is the living bread whom, gives us life every time we take and eat. Life for our soul. Life for our spiritual life.

The Holy Eucharist is not one without the other. We need the bread to have the wine, and we need the wine to have the bread. The Body and Blood of Christ is what forms us as one with Christ. I have always loved knowing that the priest does the same thing that Jesus did over 2000 years ago. He blesses, breaks, and shares. Maybe that's why I've always been so interested. WE do the same thing our beloved Lord does.

The Holy Eucharist is a wonderful mystery, that is certainly fun to teach to kids (First Communion.) I get to share my love for the blessed sacrament with kids. I love sharing my Love for the church and for God, every time  I teach.

May we, who take part in the Holy Eucharist, be united with God in: Mind, Body, Soul and Strength.

"MY LORD AND MY GOD"
Saint Thomas
