The Eucharist is the living bread from Heaven. The Eucharist is the Real, True and Substantial Presence of Jesus’ Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. After His Resurrection, it was in the breaking of the bread that Jesus’ disciples recognized Him. In receiving the Eucharist, we become the Body of Christ. We are transformed and are united with our brothers and sisters in Holy Communion. Receiving the Eucharist is the foretaste or promise of what God has in store for us in Heaven.
