Why is the Holy Eucharist the center of all sacramental life?

Mission Lab

The Holy Eucharist is the center of all sacramental life because It unites and strengthens the Church.

Baptism is the beginning of our Christian life. It initiates us into the life of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but we must grow ever more alive in this divine life by praying, receiving the sacraments, hearing the Word of God, serving others with a Christ-like attitude and faithfully fulfilling the responsibility of the present moment for the Lord.

Jesus Christ is present in the Holy Eucharist to be our Sacrifice, our Food, our Life, and our Companion, Who strengthens and nourishes us with His Flesh and Blood and Who unites us to Himself, to the Father, to the Holy Spirit, and to all the members of the Church. Therefore, the Eucharist is the center of all sacramental life in the Church.
