Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life, where Jesus is really, truly and substantially present. Celebration of the Holy Eucharist (the Holy Mass) is the Church’s most important act of praise and thanksgiving to God, and its greatest sign of unity.

Throughout the history of the Church, the faithful have often gathered to pray before the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. This practice is known as Eucharistic Adoration.
