At the Last Supper Jesus Christ instituted the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist so that the Holy Sacrifice might be offered up in the Church through all ages as the spiritual food of the faithful. According to the Second Vatican Council, “At the Last Supper, on the night when He was betrayed, Our Savior instituted the Eucharistic Sacrifice of His Body and Blood. He did this in order to perpetrate the sacrifice of the Cross throughout the centuries until he should come again, and thus to entrust to His beloved spouse, the Church, a memorial of His death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is eaten, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.”
Good and praiseworthy are the various venerations of the Holy Eucharist, but the most praiseworthy is that which best corresponds to the will of Christ our Lord, and which is compatible with the tradition of the Eastern Church and with the spirit of our rite; such a veneration is the love and appreciation for the Divine Liturgy and frequent Holy Communion. This is what Christ wants, this is what the Church encourages, and this is what the need of our soul demands.
Therefore, the Most Holy Eucharist as connected with the act of the Unbloody Sacrifice of the Divine Liturgy and Holy Communion, should, and must always, occupy first place in our Church. As regards the significance of Holy Communion for our spiritual life, St. Pope Pius X says; “Holy Communion – is the shortest and surest way to heaven.”
