Eucharist, taken from the Greek word for thanksgiving, is celebrated during Mass when the faithful gather to listen to God's words from scripture, sing, praise and thank God for his blessings. When we pray the words of Jesus at the Last Supper, "... this is my Body ... this is the chalice of my Blood ..." we accept the sign of the new covenant between God and his people. We do this in memory of Jesus. The bread and wine, through prayer and the calling of the Holy Spirit, has truly, substantially, become the Body and Blood of Christ. This gift really and truly changes us to be a living reflection of Jesus in the world.
