Eucharist--Eucaristía

El Cuerpo de Cristo

The greatest love story of all time is contained
in a tiny white host.

- Ven. Fulton J. Sheen

   The Holy Eucharist is the sacrament in which Jesus Christ gives his Body and Blood--Himself--for us, so that we too might give ourselves to Him in love and be united with him in Holy Communion. In this way we are joined with the one Body of Christ, the Church.

   La Sagrada Eucaristía es el Sacramento en el que Jesús entrega por nosotros su Cuerpo y su Sangre: a sí mismo, para que también nosotros nos entreguemos a él con amor y nos unamos a él en la Sagrada Comunión. Así nos unimos al único Cuerpo de Cristo, la Iglesia.


Steps for making your First Communion:

  1. Be at least in the second grade;
  2. Attend Religious Education classes for two consecutive years;
  3. Make your first sacramental confession in the Sacrament of Reconciliation;
  4. Make your first Holy Communion.

Pasos para hacer su Primera Communión:

  1. Por lo menos estar en el segundo grado escolar;
  2. Assistir dos años consecutivos en las clases de religión; 
  3. Confesarse la primera vez en el sacramento de Reconciliación;
  4. Receibir la Sagrada Communión la primera vez.

Your life must be woven around the Eucharist. Direct your eyes to Him, who is the Light; bring your hearts very close to His Divine Heart; ask Him for the grace to know Him, for the charity to love Him, for the courage to serve Him.
Seek Him longingly.

- St. Teresa of Calcutta
