Best Answer

The Eucharist is the source and the summit of the Catholic Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church). Catholic's believe, based off of much scripture, the most plain of which is John 6, that the Eucharist transforms through transubstantiation from ordinary bread and wine into Jesus's actual flesh and blood. So it's a very important.
