Gratitude for the roots

Thank you for the wonderful article by Mike Aquilina, “That Strange Word ‘Eucharist’ ” in the Nov. 18 issue. I wish more Christians understood the connections of the Catholic Church with her Jewish roots. There would be fewer divisions among Christians if this history were more widely known, and the Mass would be better appreciated.
