Why Do Catholics Do That?!? In this 60-second video about the Eucharist, we look at: Why do Catholics believe the bread and wine become the real body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ?
Jesus said, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” (Luke 22:19-20)
Jesus also said, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them”
Watch this video! It also explains why we call the Eucharist “communion”.
