We become holy through love, and the Eucharist is about love. Because of Jesus’s love for us, he gave himself as an offering. In doing so, he freed us from the bonds of sin and bestowed on us the gift of freedom. Love and freedom are closely related. The Eucharist is a thanksgiving celebration for Jesus’s love, poured out to gain freedom for all humankind.
