The unleavened bread and the wine are used to symbolize the connection with the Passover meal. Leaved bread is used in Eastern Orthodox Church and some other places to symbolize the difference and break from Judaism. Wine in the Catholic religion is required to be made from grapes and have alcoholic remnants so it is sacred. The proper minister during this sacrament would be a priest acting as the sacramental representation of Christ on the alter, so he represents Christ and the view of the Eucharist. In Eastern churches the Eucharist and wine are all mushed together and distributed on a spoon to the tongue of the person.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
