“I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” Jn 6:51
“The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself…. The liturgy of the Word and liturgy of the Eucharist together form one single act of worship; The Eucharistic table set for us is the table both of the Word of God and of the Body of the Lord.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1324, 1346
