The Eucharist: Sacrament of Unity
Church House Publishing, 2001 - 29 pages
The Eucharist - Sacrament of Unity sets out the teaching of the Church of England, within the Anglican Communion, on the Eucharist. It discusses the following questions:
Why is it so important?
How is Christ present?
Is the Eucharist a sacrifice in any sense?
Why do Anglicans offer eucharistic hospitality to members of other churches and expect to receive it from them?
In 1998 the Roman Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, Ireland and Scotland issued One Bread, One Body and invited ecumenical responses.
In this courteous, but robust reply, the House of Bishops shows that the Church of England upholds the faith of the Church concerning the Eucharist and justifies eucharistic sharing.
