The Eucharist

The Eucharist is the culmination of Christian Initiation.

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, “Take and eat; this is my body.”

For Catholics, the Eucharist (consecrated bread and wine given out at Mass) is the literal body and blood of Jesus Christ. It is not just a symbol but the actual body and blood of our Lord, as he told his disciples at the Last Supper.
