The Eucharist is the source and summit of our Catholic faith. Jesus is present in His body and blood, soul and divinity, in the Eucharist. This real presence of Jesus in Holy Communion is what makes us Catholic. During Mass, Catholics receive the Holy Communion and hear the word of God. Our lives should be centered around Jesus in the Eucharist. Therefore attending Sunday Mass is the most important hour in our week.
