The Eucharist–instituted by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper–is at the core of the Mass. Jesus Christ, Body and Blood, Soul & Divinity, becomes truly present (John 6: 51-58). At the Last Supper, sharing His Body and Blood with the disciples, Jesus said, “Do this in memory of me” – and so we do, through Holy Communion.
