As we remember the gift of sacrifice to us, the Holy Father discusses the sacrament of the Eucharist and how it unites us with the living God and allows us to freely give of ourselves to others. The Eucharist is an exchange between God and humanity that brings us closer to him and reminds us of the purpose for our lives. The heart of the Church and the heart of the life of every Christian is essentially eucharistic in that it carries Christ within.

Dear brother priests], may Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life 9cf. jn 14;6), be the object of our thought, the topic of our words, the reason for our life.

--Meeting with priests in the Cathedral of Brindisi, June 15, 2008

Pope Benedict XVI discusses the mission and purpose of the priesthood. The Holy Father states that the essence of the priesthood is consecration, sacrifice, and the giving over of one's self to God.
