From Latin common, the term communion make reference to participate in the common . It may be a family treatment in the communication or from a congregation of people with similar interests or beliefs.
For example: "There is no doubt that there is a communion between the two: it shows in their eyes", “Communion broke down on campus when several conflicts broke out between the players”, “Thousands of people in communion approached the town square to congratulate the local idol”.
For him Christianity , communion or Eucharist is the sacrament which involves the transformation of a piece of bread (known as host ) and the wine in the body and the blood from Christ so that these substances are received by the believer.
We must not forget that also within the religious field, and specifically the Catholic, is what is known as communion of saints. This is an expression that is used both to refer to the Eucharist itself as to the relationship that exists between people who are united to Christ and who are the ones that allow the formation of the church family.
The priest is the only person qualified to perform this rite of transformation. Communion implies the unity of man with God and reflects the sacrifice of Son who delivers his flesh for the salvation of mankind.
The bread used during communion is unleavened bread , made with wheat. The wine must be pure, obtained from the fruit of the vine and without any alteration. It only mixes with a little water.
Every baptized person can receive communion. In the case of children, it is necessary that they first receive catechesis about the sacrament. That is why the first communion is a rite very important in the life of the Catholic, which includes the corresponding training and is usually taken at ten years of age. It is usual that this first communion is lived as a true party.
Collectively it is, as a rule, how any child receives their First Communion, after logically having received the sacrament of baptism and confession. Once this religious ceremony has taken place, you will celebrate it in the company of your family and friends with whom you will celebrate this moment in style.
In addition to all of the above, it should be noted that, within the Catholic Church, there is a movement called "Communion and Liberation." In the middle of the twentieth century it was when the Italian priest Luigi Giussani made the decision to found the one whose main basis of his thought is that man achieves his liberation from the figure of Jesus.
However, in addition to all this, this group, which has managed to be present in more than sixty countries, also aims to help and support the Church in the various missions that it carries out in society. But we must not overlook that advocates a much more mature Christian education of all its members.
