Gentle Reader,

Eucharist: From the Greek eucharisto (yoo-khar-is-teh’-o), meaning “to be grateful, feel thankful.” Also called the Lord’s Supper, the Last Supper and Communion. A sacrament observed by the eating of unleavened bread (symbolizing the broken body of Christ) and the drinking of wine or grape juice (symbolizing His shed blood). A time of reverent reflection and remembrance. Instituted by Jesus on the night of His betrayal (Luke 22:14-23).
