The Mass is the source and summit of the Christian life.
From Sacred Scripture: John 6:51
I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.
Revised Standard Version, Second Catholic Edition
Eucharistic Prayer II, Roman Missal
At the time he was betrayed and entered willingly into his Passion, he took bread and, giving thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: take this, all of you, and eat of it, for this is my Body, which will be given up for you.
In a similar way, when supper was ended, he takes the chalice and, once more giving thanks, he gave it to his disciples, saying: take this, all of you, and drink from it, for this is the chalice of my Blood,
the Blood of the new and eternal covenant, which will be poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in memory of me.
