The Eucharist is the source and basis of all Catholic life. it encompasses the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Eucharist is a celebration of praise and thanksgiving to the Father, it is remembering and celebrating the action of Jesus Christ, and the power by the Holy Spirit. The liturgy is in the unity of the Spirit: everyone has a function and ministry.

Eucharist is a sacrifice making present the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and the real presence of Christ which is shown as bread and wine. The Eucharist shows that Jesus offered his life for humanity.

The last supper is a unique event, but one event where Jesus' ministry is show with the constant sharing of meals with men and women of all parts of society. Food is necessary for life; it comforts and brings people together. Spiritual food does the same, at a different level.

The Seder plate
The very earliest reference to the Eucharist that we have, comes from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians.

Paul's letter to the Corinthians was written in the middle of the first century, probably around AD 55.

Paul's words to the Corinthians give us evidence that the Eucharist, or the "breaking of the bread", was central to the life and identity of the early Christian communities

Paul corrects the Corinthians, because while they celebrate the death and resurrection of the Lord in the breaking of the bread they are divided among themselves

Summarise each dot point on pg 167
Early Christians celebrated the breaking of the bread as a response to "do this in memory of me" said by Jesus at the last supper.
Jesus' memory was preserved through the reading and telling of stories, prayer and celebrating, which was all done in Eucharist in hope that Jesus may come again.
Early Christians believed the breaking of the bread symbolised eating and drinking the blood and body of Christ.
The early Christians gathered on Sunday to read the Scriptures, to re-tell the story of Jesus' death and resurrection, to remember him blessing the bread and wine. Christians believed and taught that the bread and wine symbolise the body and blood of Christ. Early in the second century St Ignatius, described the Eucharist as the flesh of our saviour, Jesus Christ.
The early communities met in house-churches, in a family's home. The unity and love experienced in the breaking of the bread showed the care and support early christians had for one-another.
In the first twenty years after Jesus' death, the breaking of the bread was taken with a meal, similar to the last supper. However in the middle of the first century the blessing of the bread and wine were separated from the meal. The bread and wine were first consecrated in a prayer, which is called the Eucharistic Prayer. After this Christians were allowed to take portions of the Eucharist home, to receive during the week or to bring to those who were not there, especially those who had been persecuted.
The meal was held later and it came to be called the "agape" or "love feast".
The basilica was a large, long hall used by the Romans as law courts.
Deacons acolytes who assisted at the altar would take a portion to people that could not attend

The quality an individual possess not physical but can be expressed, mentally and spiritually, with the help of the body and blood of Jesus it can be nourished.
The sign of peace was recommended to be used just before Communion
In most countries, the people could receive Communion in their hands not just on the tongue
Put 4 points in your own words
Mass is not spoken in Latin anymore it is now done in the language of the people.
Christian followers now play an active part in liturgy, this is done through reading, commentating, serving and helping to give out Communion
The response to the words of Consecration are with an acclamation which is Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again
Priests were given a choice between four Eucharistic prayers which were available for use on ordinary Sundays
Communion could now be given "under two species" or as consecrated bread and wine
More importance was given to the reading of Scripture as appropriate to the Church season or feast. A responsorial psalm was introduced after the first Scripture reading which was taken from the Old Testament
