The Holy Eucharist is a sacrament and a sacrifice.
In the Holy Eucharist, under the appearances of bread and wine, the Lord Christ is contained, offered, and received.
This miracle of God’s physical presence to us at every Mass is the truest testament to Christ’s love for us and His desire for each of us to have a personal relationship with Him.
The doctrine of the Real Presence that Catholics believe today was believed by the earliest Christians 2,000 years ago.
