“…So he went in to stay with them. And it happened that, while he was with them at table,
he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them.
With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him…”
Luke 24: 29-30

At the heart of the Church’s liturgical life is the celebration of the Sacraments which are real and spiritual encounters with our Lord Jesus Christ. It is through the Mass, as well as the other Sacraments, prayers,  Masses with Healing Prayers, Eucharistic Adoration, and other devotions, that we most perfectly glorify God and offer praise and thanksgiving for His blessings.

The Holy Eucharist

Central among the Sacraments is the Holy Eucharist, which is the source from which all the Church’s power flows and the summit toward which all our activity is directed. The celebration of the Holy Eucharist is the highest form of worship that the Church can offer, and all who are made sons and daughters of God by faith and baptism are called to full, active, and conscious participation in it. Through the Eucharist, the covenant between the Lord and man is renewed, drawing the faithful into the compelling love of Christ and setting them on fire.  Through the Holy Mass, “the faithful may express in their lives, and manifest to others, the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church.” (Constitution of the Sacred Liturgy)

The Eucharistic Fast

The regulation for fasting is considered a means of spiritual preparation for receiving the Eucharist and a symbol of reverence for the Sacrament. The Eucharistic Fast is limited to one hour before actually receiving the Eucharist. It pertains to all solid food and all drinks, except water. Taking medicine does not break the fast. The fast applies to priests who celebrate the Mass and by the faithful, regardless of what time of day the Mass is celebrated and Communion is received. Those who are sick, in hospitals – even if not confined to bed – and those caring for the sick, may receive Communion even if they have taken food during the previous hour.

Reception of the Eucharist

In and through the Sacrament of the Eucharist, Christians are fully joined to Christ. Therefore, individuals preparing to receive Holy Communion should be mindful to hold the Blessed Eucharist in highest honor and to reverence the Sacrament with the greatest adoration. Genuflections, respectful silence, and other signs of reverence for the Blessed Sacrament are appropriate recognitions of God’s mysterious gift of Christ for us in this Sacrament.

Make a Bow before Receiving Communion: Before receiving the Sacred Host or the Precious Blood, bow your head as a sign of reverence to the Sacrament.

Receiving Communion on the Tongue:  The minister says: The Body of Christ.” The answer is “Amen.” Then, in one movement, open wide your mouth and stick out your tongue. Step away from the communion line and face the altar.

Receiving Communion on the Hand:  If Communion is received in the hand, the hands should first of all be clean. If one is right handed the left hand should rest upon the right. The minister says: “The Blood of Christ.” The answer is “Amen.” The host will then be laid in the palm of the left hand and then taken by the right hand to the mouth. If one is left-handed this is reversed. It is not appropriate to reach out with the fingers and take the host from the person distributing.

Receiving Communion from the Chalice: The minister says: “The Blood of Christ.” The answer is “Amen.” Receive the chalice with both hands. With both hands, bring the chalice to your mouth to avoid the risk of spilling a drop.
