The holy Eucharist
 
The third Sacrament is the Holy Eucharist. Its matter is wheaten bread and 
wine from the grape mixed with a little water so that the water becomes 
part of the wine. The water signifies the faithful who are incorporated 
into Christ. Other than wheaten bread and wine from the grape cannot be the 
matter for this Sacrament. The form of this Sacrament is the very words of 
Christ, "This is My Body," and "This is the chalice of My Blood of the new 
and eternal testament; the mystery of faith; which shall be shed for you 
and for many, to the remission of sins." These words spoken by the priest 
in the person of Christ brings into being this Sacrament. The minister of 
this Sacrament is the priest; and no one else can consecrate this matter 
into the Body of Christ.
