This unit will provide an overview of the sacraments of Eucharist and Anointing of the Sick, from historical, liturgical, and theological perspectives. Firstly, we will investigate the development of the Eucharistic tradition and will treat key elements of Catholic Eucharistic theology. Topics to be considered include the Eucharist in relation to the mystery of Christ and the Church; the Eucharist in the Scriptures; and the development of the theology of the Eucharist in terms of thanksgiving, memorial, sacrifice, presence, covenant, and communion.

In both cases, the sacraments are understood as means by which believers are offered and enact a deepening participation in the paschal mystery of Christ.
