The Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith, it is the true presence of Jesus. We celebrate this great mystery at every Mass. As we recieve the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ we enter communion and are made one with Him and His life is gorwn in us. We are invited to recieve this great Sacrament as often as possible as true spiritual food and drink. The Church makes the Eucharist and the Eucharist builds the Church.
