First Holy Communion

 

The liturgical life of the Church revolves around the sacraments, with the Eucharist at the center. At Mass, we are fed by the word and nourished by the Body and Blood of Christ. The Eucharist is not a sign or symbol of Jesus; rather we receive Jesus Himself in and through the Eucharistic species. The priest, through the power of his ordination and the action of the Holy Spirit, transforms the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus. This called the Transubstantiation. Receiving the Eucharist changes us. It signifies and affects the unity of the community and serves to strengthen the Body of Christ.
