The Eucharist is the life of the people! The Eucharist forges between them a common bond, a Christian kinship. All eat the same bread; all are table companions of Jesus Christ who supernaturally creates among them a feeling of togetherness.
The Acts of the Apostles states that the whole community of the first Christians, converted Jews and baptized pagans, belonging to different regions, “had but one heart and one soul” (Acts 4:32). Why? Because they were attentive to the teaching of the Apostles and faithful in sharing in the breaking of the bread (Acts 2:42).
