[[Image:Covered Vessels 2.jpg|left|100px150px]]'''''[[Eucharist]]''''' comes from the Greek meaning ''giving thanks''. Other names for the Eucharist include: the ''Holy Gifts'', ''Communion'', and the ''Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ''. [[Orthodox Church|Orthodox Christians]] believe that the Real Presence of God (not merely a sign) is present after the [[consecration]] of the Gifts.
The Eucharist is the center of life in the Orthodox Church because the Church is primarily a eucharistic community. The Eucharist is the completion of all of the Church's other sacraments and the source and the goal of all of the Church's doctrines and institutions.
