Holy Bread because Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life.” John 6:35. The Orthodox Church calls the Holy Communion “The Gift”. Because communion is not just one in spirit, it rquired an Incarnation of holiness into material Body, so that by partaking of material bread we may enter into union with eternal holiness. Partaking of, eating, the Word of God…a “Holy Mystery”. His Gift to us.
