The Eucharist: The Lord's Supper
Catholic Christians share with most Christians the faith
that Jesus Christ, on the night he was betrayed, ate a final
or last supper with his Apostles.
This final meal was also the celebration of the
Feast of the Unleavened Bread
which commemorated the
passing over of the Jews from the death in slavery to the
Egyptians to life in the Promised Land.
