Eucharist By: Emma, Kelsey, Gia, Amanda, and Katie
We are nourished by the Body and Blood of Christ Jesus taught his followers the importance of sustaining life and feeding the hungry. When Jesus said “his flesh is true food and his blood is true drink” He wanted us to learn the importance of sustaining God`s life within us. In the sacrament of the Eucharist we receive everlasting nourishment.
We are nourished by the Body and Blood of Christ The bread and wine become Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. We complete initiation into Christ and his church by sharing Christ’s body and blood in the sacrament of the Eucharist. Some ways we can commit ourselves to living as Christ did Feed the Hungry, Comfort the Sorrowful, and Heal those who are ill.
Jesus gives his disciples a new covenant Passover is the day in which we remember the way God delivered the Jews from slavery out of Egypt A plague swept across the land while the first Passover took its first trip Paschal means of or relating to Passover The Jewish people marked their doors with lamb blood to symbolize the death of their first born child
Jesus gives his disciples a new covenant “On that night a plague swept through Egypt, killing all of the Egyptians’ firstborn sons. But it passed over the homes marked with blood, thus sparing the Hebrews.” On Holy Thursday Jesus took bread and wine broke it and gave it to his disciples saying “Take this cup and bread in memory of me” A covenant is a promise or agreement God brought people freedom to Israel
We are one with Jesus Christ Disciples were walking to the village of Emmaus after Jesus’ resurrection. -There they met with Jesus (didn’t know who he was) At supper Jesus took bread and said the blessing. That’s when the disciples realized it was Jesus. After the Ascension, the disciples would be enlightened by the Holy Spirit.
We are one with Jesus Christ In the Acts of the Apostles we read about the Eucharist continued to be celebrated - Through the power of the Holy Spirit * Mass – the celebration of the Eucharist Through the breaking of the bread =Body and Blood under the appearance of bread and wine Through the Real Presence of Christ we are nourished to live as Jesus’ disciples

We celebrate the Eucharist In the Introductory Rites we sing a song as we enter church and we prepare to listen to God`s word and receive Christ`s body and blood. In the Liturgy of the Word we listen to God`s word in the first 2 readings and then rise to listen to the gospel. The priest then gives the homily and tells us how to live out the word of God. In the Liturgy of the Eucharist we receive Jesus body and Blood under the appearance of bread and wine. We also feel Gods presence and ask for his strength and support. In the Concluding Rites the priest blesses us and tells us to go out into the world and spread the message we heard at church.
