  Eucharist (Catholic Church) Totally Explained
Eucharist in the Catholic Church refers to both the celebration of the Mass, that's the Eucharistic Liturgy, and the consecrated bread and wine which according to the faith become the body and blood of Christ.
In the teaching of the Catholic Church, the Eucharist is one of the seven sacraments, and is commonly referred to as "the Blessed Sacrament".
Catholics typically restrict the term 'communion' to the reception of the Body and Blood of Christ by the communicants during the celebration of the Mass and to the communion of saints in which receiving the Eucharist comes fully present.

It is the tragedy of that theology, in the centuries since the foundation by St. Thomas, that its practitioners have not understood its correction of Aristotle for what it is: a methodological conversion from a pagan, monadic, necessitarian and nonhistorical notion of being to a free, Trinitarian, and covenantal-historical notion.

The Eucharist was understood by the Latin Fathers in the early middle ages to be the actual union of the Old and the New Testaments, as scripture, as revelation, as salvation history and as worship of the One God of that one history.

 Seattle Catholic - Lose the Past, Lose the Present
Humanist love for language, literature and antiquity in general was valuable in the development of what is called "positive theology", a theology dedicated to exploration of the primary historical sources of Christian life: the Scriptures, the Fathers, liturgical texts, early canonical legislation, conciliar decrees, and references to the behavior of the faithful through the ages.
On the other hand, Catholics concerned for the presentation of a general picture of history from an orthodox viewpoint, simultaneously drawing from positive theology and yet aware of the need to operate under the guidance of systematic theology, were not given the full support that the importance of their work deserved.
Finally, digesting the fact that the victorious historical picture has been drawn to their disadvantage, and that much of positive theology's raw data has been dragged into a systematic attack upon the Church, many Catholics have drawn the conclusion that history, its sources, and its tools must be rejected as innately suspect.

The importance of the Eucharist in the life of the community and its central role within the sacramental economy are beyond doubt.

In other words, if the Eucharist is the source and summit of the whole Christian life, this communal prayer action cannot be anything but inclusive of all the hopes and sufferings, joys and struggles of the actual local and global community.
