Eucharist what is this term?

With due respect to the Cardinal Sarah,
"Let Us Return with Joy to the Eucharist" the use of the term "Eucharist" even though biblical creates confusion. A blurring of the terminology, roles, theology, and practical application.

Eucharist what is this Eucharist? I know it is from the Bible and means thanks.
Is this what is known as the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass or is this the Holy Eucharist the Blessed Sacrament? Eucharist is this gathering around a table for a meal or is this- Priest Altar Victim- unbloody Sacrifice of Calvary offered to the Father?

For a Eucharist do you need a congregation? Or because it is a Eucharist the Priest is dispensed from his obligation to celebrate the Eucharist daily, therefore no need of side altars for a private Eucharist. Eucharist lends itself to concelebration a gathering.

Gone are private Masses without a congregation and gone are all the associated graces because we changed the terminology!

Besides I am sure a Protestant would be comfortable with using the term Eucharist.

Yes interesting information. Still I think a Protestant would sit easy with this explanation as it doesn't denote - Sacrifice - Priest - Victim - offered to the Father

Terminology must be returned. 1 Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. 2 Holy Eucharist or Blessed Sacrament.
I can go to Mass and not receive the Holy Eucharist.

FMS thanks. New Terminology - if I go to the Eucharist and I don't receive the Eucharist did I partake in the Eucharist?

Catholic Terminology - If I go to Mass and don't receive Holy Communion I still attended to the Sacrifice of the Mass.

Cardinal Sarah, "Let Us Return with Joy to the Eucharist" Pre VII this would mean let us return to Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion. Whereas the Cardinal is saying lets return to the Joy of the Mass and Holy Communion. Eucharistic Adoration is something other than the the Mass.

The term is not new:

"Gone are private Masses without a congregation" Maybe among the Novus Ordo. Happily the Church is bigger than that. ;-)
