Christ promised "Behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age"(Mt. 28:20). In order to continue to be present throughout the ages until His return, Christ instituted the Eucharist. He entrusted the Eucharist to His Church and it continues to be a source of communion and nourishment for his faithful. The Eucharist is a direct encounter with Christ. The Catholic Church confesses that the Eucharist is not simply a mere symbol, but the actual Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ.
