Basic doctrine of Christian initiation
Welcome to the course to receive the body and blood of Christ in the Eucharist.
Listen, learn and share these 6 teachings of our Catholic Faith.
First Communion is one of the seven sacraments of the Church, and one of the four sacraments of initiation into the Christian life together with baptism, penance and confirmation. Through the first communion, it is possible to take for the first time the host and the wine, which for those who profess, is not a symbol, but is the Body and Blood of Christ. The real presence of the body and blood of Christ in bread and wine is what is called Transubstantiation.
This sacrament was instituted by Jesus during the Last Supper, who in the company of his twelve disciples took the bread and said:
“Take and eat all of it, because this is my Body, which will be given for you”
Then he took the wine and said:
“Take and drink all of it, because this is the cup of my Blood, Blood of the new and eternal covenant that will be poured out for you and for all men for the forgiveness of sins, do this in remembrance of me”.
This sends us to celebrate in memory until he comes back, this is the life of the church until his second coming. That is why he himself rectifies us even when he says: “I am that living bread lowered from heaven; he who eats this bread will live forever. The bread that I will give is my own body. I will give it for the life of the world “(Jn.6, 51).
