What is the eucharist?
“Jesus said to them, ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him’” (John 6:53-56).
Today, the most distinguishing thing about Catholicism is our belief in the Real Presence—Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity—of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. And, because of that firm belief, we believe you need to have a personal relationship with the Eucharistic Jesus!
Whether it is time in silent Adoration with the Eucharistic Lord or at the altar of His sacrifice at Calvary, Jesus invites you and me to spend time with Him, where He is really and truly present here on earth. All of our Sacraments aid our Christian life, but “the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life.”
If you want to find heaven on earth, you must come to the Eucharist (the Holy Mass) and meet the Eucharistic Jesus. He calls to each one of us, and this is why Eucharist is essential to the St. Malachy CLOVER model.
