The Eucharist draws each of us closer to Christ as individuals, but also as a community. As Catholics, we never really worship alone. At the Eucharistic Liturgy, we gather with the young and old, the rich and poor, as well as millions around the world and the saints in heaven, to celebrate Christ’s sacrifice. (USCCB, Sacraments and Social Mission)
The Eucharist is the sum and summary of our faith:
Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist, in turn, confirms our way of thinking.
In the face of the sin and injustice we see present in our communities and in our world, the Eucharist “plants a seed of living hope in our daily commitment to the work before us,” challenging us to live “Eucharistic” lives. (Ecclesia de Eucharistia, no. 20).
