The Holy Eucharist is our most treasured gift of the Church. It is the source and summit of our Christian life and stands above all else. As Advent begins, we wait anxiously for the coming of Jesus. Let us remember that Jesus is truly with us at every Mass in the Holy Eucharist. We receive Him and all the graces He bestows upon us. The Holy Eucharist is a gift of the Church and a gift to you.
The Sacraments are beautiful, grace-giving gifts. When you think of the most special times in life, they are surrounded by the sacraments—Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders, Anointing of the Sick. Each brings Christ into our lives and develops a communion of faith in the Church. It is Christ that is at work in each sacrament. The fruits of each sacrament bring us life and give us the grace of God. The Sacraments are a gift of the Church and a gift to you
