‘The Eucharist sums up in itself Christian worship, experience and theology in an amazing richness. It combines Word and Sacrament; its appeal is to spirit and sense; it brings together the sacrifice of Calvary and the presence of the risen Christ; it is communion with God and communion with man; it covers the whole gamut of religious moods and emotions…The Eucharist also gathers up the meaning of the Church; its whole action implies and sets forth our mutual interdependence in the body of Christ; it unites us with the Church of the past and even, through its paschal overtones, with the first people of God, as an anticipation of the heavenly banquet.’
