Sacrament of Holy Communion

holy communion

Holy Communion is a sacramental rite of the Orthodox Church, instituted by Jesus Christ at the Mystical Supper. "This is My body," and "this is My blood," He said, given to us "for the forgiveness of sins" (Matthew 26:26-28). As Christians, we believe that this is not merely a symbolic ceremony, but a mysterious one, in which we commune with God by partaking of His body and blood, receiving the remission of sins.
