Do this in remembrance

"This is my body, broken for you." Christ said this as he passed bread to his disciples, and ever since Christians have repeated this ceremony as the sacrament of holy communion. However, there has been great debate over what communion actually entails. While many Protestants see this ceremony as wholly symbolic, Catholics believe that when the priest lifts the host and says hoc est corpus meum, the bread is somehow changed into the actual body of Christ, as shown here by Bruceywan.
