Communing with Christ makes it possible for us to nurture a very close fellowship with Him; He offers us His body and His blood. Only the sacrifice of Christ brings about reconciliation with God, and only a conscious participation in the absolution allows us to experience the benefits of Christ’s sacrifice.
Of the three sacraments, Holy Communion is the only sacrament which we receive repeatedly. It preserves and develops the life we received at our rebirth with water and the Spirit. This special connection with Christ increases our power to overcome, to be cleansed from sin, and to extricate ourselves from harmful situations or influences.
