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.
