The Eucharist also sacredly known as The Mass or Holy Communion or The Lord's Supper is considered to be the rite for Christians. This rite is usually performed as a remembrance in order for the fulfilments what Jesus did at his last supper. This very sacredly represents the time of Jesus' last supper where he distributed bread among his disciples by saying "This is my body," and the cup, saying "This is my blood." In the Catholic Church the word "Eucharist" refers to the bread and the cup sanctified in the itinerary of the rite.

The word "Eucharist" is derived from the Greek noun εὐχαριστία, in English known as "eucharistia", which means thanksgiving. in the present day the term "Eucharist" is mostly used by Catholics, the Eastern Orthodox, the Oriental Orthodox, Anglicans, United Methodists, Lutherans. Most other Protestant society use this term infrequently, but few rebuff it completely.

It is the celebration or re-enactment of the Lord's Supper or the Last Supper. Not all Christian denominations use the term Eucharist. Most call it communion. It is from a Greek word meaning "I give thanks"  It is an outward expression of thankfulness to God for inner faith and peace from the assurance of forgiveness of sins from God. This Jesus accomplished for us through his sacrificial death on the cross. Jesus took the punishment and wrath of God for the sins of all mankind. In effect God's wrath was all poured out and spent on Christ. All believers in Jesus can claim they are no longer under condemnation from God but are forgiven for sin and that God is a loving heavenly Father. Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into heaven from where he poured out the Holy Spirit of grace upon the earth. So there is now no condemnation to those who believe in Jesus. Just love joy and peace in the Holy Ghost. Christians go through many trials and sufferings but through prayer and seeking God search for strength from God to go through trials.

Holy Eucharist: A Christian sacrament commemorating the Last Supper by consecrating bread and wine
Eucharist was a Swedish melodic death metal band which released two albums in the 1990s.
Eucharist in the Catholic Church refers to both the celebration of the Mass, that is the Eucharistic Liturgy, and the consecrated bread and wine which according to the faith become the body and blood of Christ. Blessed Sacrament is a devotional term used in the Roman Catholic Church to refer to the Eucharistic species (the Body and Blood of Christ).
