“While they were at supper, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, ‘Take and eat, this is my body.’ Then taking a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood… .’ ”  (Matthew 26:27-28)

Holy Communion

The Second Vatican Council (1960-65) called Holy Communion the “source and summit of Christian life.” The sacrament of Eucharist motivates our lives as followers of Jesus and is the way we celebrate our oneness in faith. Catholics believe that the Eucharist is the real presence of Christ in the form of bread and wine.
