Extracts from this document...


Re A02- Holy Communion By Mary-Louise Duffy 10R In the Roman Catholic religion, we believe that the Eucharist is the most important of worship and during the Eucharist in a mass, the Jesus' sacrifice is made present, but this does not mean that he is being sacrificed again, as there is only one sacrifice. After all, it was Jesus who said for us to do it again at mass. ('Do It In Memory Of Me.')
