What happens during the Eucharistic Prayer?
1. We honor God for all the wonderful things he has done for us.
2. The Consecration: by the power of the Holy Spirit and through the words and actions of the priest, the bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. This is called the "Real Presence".
3. We proclaim the mystery of faith by calling to mind the Death, Resurrection, and coming of the risen Lord in glory
4. We pray that the Holy Spirit will unite the Church in Heaven and on earth.
