Answering the Call
“Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, ‘What do you seek?’ And they said to him, ‘Rabbi’ (which means Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’ He said to them, ‘Come and see’,” Gospel of St John 1:39. Since the days when the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven, his disciples have met on the first day of the week to celebrate Sunday Mass. The Holy Eucharist on the Lord's Day is a unique way to remember Christ, he who is risen and alive among his friends.
There is nothing more important we can offer to God the Father for our salvation and that of the whole of humanity.
That is why the Holy Eucharist is the source and the summit of all that we do as a Church. Without the Holy Eucharist, we would be infinitely diminished as a Christian people. Without the Priesthood, there would be no Eucharist. Without the Eucharist, there would be no Church.
