Eucharist

The Eucharist is the heart and summit of the Church’s life, for in it Christ associates his Church and all her members with his sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered once for all on the cross to his Father; by this sacrifice he pours out the graces of salvation on his Body which is the Church.—CCC 1407

Communion with the Body and Blood of Christ increases the communicant’s union with the Lord, forgive his venial sins, and preserves him from grave sins. Since receiving this sacrament strengthens bonds of charity between the communicant and Christ, it also reinforces the unity of the Church as the Mystical Body of Christ.—CCC 1416
