‎"Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His Blood, you shall not have life in you." (John 6:54)
The interpretation of this scripture is to be taken literally and not as a figurative sort of idea or act . What Christ had said, is what Christ had meant and partaking of his flesh and blood isn't to be enjoyed as a symbolic representation of a once great man, nor as an act of celebration in remembrance for the nice work that he had accomplished on our behalf,  but as Christ - our God clearly pointed out - his flesh - his actual body was and is given up for you and I and we are expected to partake. This is the very same flesh which the foundation of our church and her beliefs rest upon and if you don't believe this then your not really Catholic.
 After we come to understand the reality of Christ in the Eucharist, then the next questions we have to ask ourselves are, "Am I worthy to partake and if not, then how do I  make myself  fit to receive?"
The answer is confession and our eternal salvation depends upon it.
