The Divine Liturgy is an expression of thankgiving and love as found in the Holy Eucharist. As our heavenly Father gives us the gifts of grapes and wheat, we receive them and change them into wine and bread and then, in turn, offer them back to Him as our loving gift of ourselves, our treasures and our talents. Through the Holy Spirit together with our prayers, God changes them mystically into the Divine Gifts of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ so that we may be one in Him.
