Through the breaking of the one bread the unity of the faithful is expressed and through communion they receive the Lord’s body and blood in the same way the apostles received them from Christ’s own hands. ~ General Instruction of the Roman Missal, § 48.3
Jesus said, “This is my body which will be given to you, do this as a memorial of me.” He did the same with the cup, he gave thanks and said,“Take this and share it among you.” (Luke 22) Now being nourished by the Eucharist meal only makes me realize that I must also nourish others with love.a parishioner

I realized the gift in the Eucharist. God’s body, broken. Broken for me. Broken for each one in our church, each with their own set of hurts and pain. I … knew that God was in my worry and anxiety – my brokenness was his in the Eucharist.a parishioner
