Unifying Power of the Eucharist

One of the roles or missions of the Holy Spirit is unity.  The locus or the place where this happens in the Church and in our community is the Eucharist.  Every other form of community building flows from the Eucharist.  These include community dialogues, community work, all aspects of the common life, the way we interact with each other, the way we give in to each other, the reverence shown to each other, and the many other ways we exercise mutual service in the community.  All of this has its source in the Eucharist.  Page 66
