He Also Granted Them The Authority To Carry Out The Sacrament Of The Eucharist
Again the Lord singled them out, and did not give such authority to the congregation:
(Luke 22:19) And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
Saint Paul when addressing this matter he said:
Saint Paul says, “which we bless” and not what “you bless”, also “which we break” and not what “you break”.
(1 Cor 10:21) You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons.
The Apostles were the only ones empowered to carry out this Sacrament, as the first fruit of the priesthood.
