Jesus said: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; …he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and… abides in me, and I in him.” John 6:51, 54, 56
The Eucharist is the heart and the summit of the Church’s life, for in it Christ associates his Church and all her members with his sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered once for all on the cross to his Father; by this sacrifice he pours out the graces of salvation on his Body which is the Church.
