The Eucharist is the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ under the appearances of bread and wine, which is offered to us during the Holy Mass and is the food of divine life. The Eucharist sanctifies us and makes us partakers of the divine life.
At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us CCC # 1323
