Eucharist

Eucharist

The Eucharist is the focal point of the religious life of the Church. It has a special meaning among all the sacraments celebrated in the liturgy of the Church. For this reason, the Church obliges believers under sin to take part in it every Sunday and prescribed church holidays.
 
Jesus, celebrating with the disciples in the Upper Room, the Last Supper established the Eucharist as a memento of his passion and resurrection – the perfect liberation of mankind from the slavery of sin and death. He made present his Paschal Mystery, which he instructed his disciples to celebrate until his second coming. Mystery and makes present the sacrifice offered by Jesus on the cross. Then he made the Apostles the priests of the New Covenant.
