The sacraments of Christian initiation—Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist—lay the foundations of every Christian life. (CCC 1212). The sacrament of Eucharist is the center of all the sacraments and is the sacrament towards which all the others are ordered. By it, Christ becomes truly present to the faithful and through it, they are nourished and sustained by the gift of His own Body and Blood.
