It is the spiritual communication of the Christian with the Lord Jesus Christ in the exact way he established that mysterious communion during the Last Supper. Holy Communion requires preparation of the bread and wine, and especially preparation of the receiver who must deem himself worthy for it, as he actually eats the Body and drinks from the Cup after the Holy Sacrifice is offered to the heavenly Father. The repetition of the Last Supper is the Holy Badarak (Divine Liturgy) that the church has inherited from the Lord Jesus.
