The Mass or Eucharistic Celebration is the central liturgical ritual in the Catholic Church where the Eucharist (Communion) is consecrated. The church describes the mass as "the source and summit of the Christian life".
The church teaches that through consecration by a priest the sacrificial bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ. The Catholic Church practises closed communion, with only baptised members in a state of grace ordinarily permitted to receive the Eucharist.

This distinction of a separate ministry was formed in the early times of Christianity;
One early source reflecting this distinction, with the three ranks or orders of Bishop, Priest and Deacon, is the writings of Saint Ignatius of Antioch.
