The theology of the Eucharist is central to any understanding of liturgy, and quite topical in the Year of the Eucharist proclaimed by Pope John Paul II.
The Catholic bishops of Pennsylvania have produced an excellent booklet called Questions and Answers on the Eucharist and have granted permission for us to reproduce excerpts here.
Please contact the Communications Director for the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference for copies of the full booklet, or to obtain permission to reproduce excerpts.

Some concluding thoughts.
In concluding its teaching on the Eucharist, the Catechism reminds us that it is also "the pledge of the glory to come."
"There is no surer pledge or clearer sign of this great hope in the new heavens and new earth 'in
which righteousness dwells' than the Eucharist" (1465).
The Catechism closes with reference to Saint Ignatius of Antioch, "Every time this mystery is celebrated, 'the work of our redemption is carried on' and we 'break the one bread that provides the
medicine of immortality; the antidote for death, and the food that makes us live forever in Jesus Christ'" (1405).
Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, in his beautiful apostolic exhortation The Church in America teaches us:
The Eucharist is the outstanding moment of encounter with the Living Christ.
For this reason, by their preaching and catechesis, the Pastors of the People of God in America must strive to give the Sunday Eucharist celebration new strength, as the source and summit of the Church's life, the safeguard of communion in the Body of Christ and an invitation to solidarity expressing the Lord's commandment: 'Love one another as I have loved you' (Jn 13:34) (35).
His words should help all of us, bishops, priests, deacons, men and women in consecrated life and faithful lay women and lay men, to renew our commitment to thank God for the extraordinary gift of Jesus' presence in the Eucharist.
