LESSON 24: The Eucharist is the “Source of Summit of Christian Life”

The Church teaches us that the Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life and that we are to build our whole lives around the celebration of the Paschal Mystery in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Church is built upon and flows towards the Eucharistic, and the memorial of the Last Supper and Christ’s saving death on the cross are united in the celebration of the Mass which gives us the Eucharist.


  • Have you ever tried to tell someone about Jesus in the Eucharist?
  • Do you approach Communion with anything in mind? His Passion, his merciful love, his resurrection?
  • Can you explain why we believe Christ is really present in the Eucharist (Real Presence)?
