[22] 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:

(1 Cor 10:16) The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

Saint Paul says, which we bless and not what you bless, also which we break and not what you break.

But as for partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ, Saint Paul clearly declares that it is for all the congregation:

(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.
