From the earliest times, the offering of Christ’s "Last Supper" has been known as the Eucharist. The Greek word Eucharist is best translated: Thanksgiving. The reason for this term being used is that communion is the most central act in the Christian faith. The Lord’s Supper and Holy Communion are later titles given to this sacred act or sacrament. The word Eucharist is returning to common usage even in protestant groups. It will be truly significant when the Eucharist (thanksgiving) returns to Christians as a way of life.
