Week 8 – The Sacrament of the Altar

 

This week we will learn about the Sacrament of the Altar, also known as Holy Communion.  Jesus instituted Holy Communion on Maundy Thursday, the night before he was crucified, as he celebrated the Passover meal with his disciples in the Upper Room.  Christians have celebrated Holy Communion since the church’s beginning, following Christ’s command to ‘This do in remembrance of Me.’

As was true also with Baptism, God takes an ordinary element, in this case, bread and wine, and through His Word, He gives it the power to do something great!  In the Sacrament, Christians receive not only bread and wine, but also Christ’s body and blood, for the forgiveness of sins, and to strengthen us in our faith.
