The Eucharist Remembering
Making Present
Sharing Meals One year old lamb, perfect and without blemish, was sacrificed to God.
Jesus, the new Lamb of God, offered himself as a sacrifice on the Cross. By the blood of the lamb, the Israelites were freed.
By his sacrifice on the cross, all who believe have the hope of passing through death with Christ into resurrection. Unleavened bread and wine strengthened the Israelites as they journey to the promise land.
Bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ, offered in sacrifice as food to strengthen the christian in the journey of life. The passover meal is the memorial of God's saving action on behalf of the Israelites
The Eucharist is the memorial of the saving love of God for his people, shown in the life, death and resurrection of jesus. Through Moses, God gave the Israelites a covenant by which he made them his people.
Jesus is the New Covenant, in whose life, death and resurrection became the people of God. Moses told the Israelites to celebrate Passover annually.
Jesus told his disciples to celebrate the Eucharist sacrifice in his memory Being united
Changing the world The eucharist is the most significant celebration in the church's liturgy. It is the source and basis of all Catholic life. In one celebration, it encompasses the life, death and resurrection of jesus The Eucharist is a celebration of praise and thanksgiving to the Father, remembering and celebrating the actions of jesus Christ, and given power by the Holuy Spririt This celebration is based on the Belief that the Eucharist is a sacrifice making present the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and the real presenceof Christ under the appearance of bread and wine.

Sharing the meal: sharing what we have so that all may have what they need Going out and making the difference: living out the ideals This is my body, which will be given up for you. This is my blood, which will be poured out for you. Do this in memory of me order of the mass in the early Roman Church was similar to our structure today. It consisted of: Gathering and preparing Reading and explaining the scriptures Community prayers of intercession Preparation of the gifts of bread and wine The Eucharistic prayer with the central moment of the consecration of the bread and wine The distribution of the body and blood of Christ Real presence is the inner change which occurs during the consecration of the bread and wine. this is also known as transubstantiation. Vatican II authorised changes to the mass so that the mass was more community friendly this meant that it would encourage people to go to mass instead of being discouraged. The altar was brought forward so the priest could face the people the mass was now celebrated in the language of the people, not only in Latin The sign of the peace was recommended to be used just before communion the poeple could receive communion in their hands not just on the tongue the prayers of the faithful were reintroduced. the first mention of the eucharist is from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians. Paul explains the last supper. He spoke about jesus breaking the bread and drinking the wine. •A monstrance is the vessel used in the Roman Catholic and Old Catholic Churches to display the consecrated Eucharistic Host the introductory rites which consists of the entrance song, the sign of the cross, the greeting, the introduction, the penitential rite, the gloria and the opening prayer.

In the first 20 years or so after jesus died, the breaking of the bread probably took place within a meal, just as it did in the last supper but during the middle of the first century, the blessing of the bread and wine left the meal and became part of a prayer called the eucharist prayer early christians gathered every sunday the first day of the week to read scriptures and to re-tell the story of jesus' death the memory of jesus was kept alive by reading and telling storys and celebrating the eucharist early christians celebrated the breaking of the bread in response to 'Do thos in memory of me' The early Christians believed that in the breakingof the bread they were eating and drinking the body and blood of the Lord.
