The Eucharist (CCC 1333)
At the very heart of the Eucharistic celebration are the bread and the wine that, by the words of Christ and the invocation of the Holy Spirit, become Christ's Body and Blood.  Faithful to the Lord's command the Church continues to do, in his memory and until his glorious return, what he did on the eve of his Passion: "He took bread..." "He took the cup filled with wine..."  These signs of bread and wind become, in a way surpassing understanding, the Body and Blood of Christ.
 

  • MASS INTENTIONS:  The Mass is the most powerful of all prayers, it is the official worship of the Church as instituted by the Lord Jesus on the night of the Last Supper.   The faithful may request that a particular Mass have a special intention (usually for a deceased loved one) by arranging it with the parish office.   

PROPER RECEPTION OF HOLY COMMUNION

  • To receive Holy Communion at Mass, one must be properly prepared (a baptized Catholic who has made First Holy Communion) and living in a state of grace.  Catholics who are married outside the Catholic Church are not permitted to receive Holy Communion.   In order to reconcile their marriage (convalidate) they must seek the assistance of a priest or a deacon.  Non-Catholics are certainly invited to participate in the celebration of the Mass but are asked to refrain from reception of Holy Communion (since Communion presupposes union with the Church).
  • For practicing Catholics who are eligible to receive Holy Communion, they must be in the state of grace, that is if they are aware of having committed a mortal sin, they must first seek Sacramental forgiveness and absolution in Confession then may receive Communion.   Anyone who receives Communion while aware of a serious sin (i.e. missing Mass on Sunday without serious cause) commits the sin of sacrilege. 
  • For practicing Catholics in the state of grace they must abide by the Eucharistic Fast, this means that Catholics who will be receiving Holy Communion must refrain from food or drink (with the exception of water) for one (1) hour before receiving Communion.   Only those Catholics whose health requires frequent food or drink or for other serious health reasons are exempt from this requirement.  
  • Catholics who are prepared to receive communion and are in the state of grace normally receives communion the tongue (in the United States a communicant may also receive on the hand).
