                                         FEAST OF FAITH
          The presider at the Eucharist can choose from among a number of different Eucharistic
  Prayers, all of which follow a similar pattern. Almost always, they begin with an epiclesis, a Greek
  word that means ““invocation upon”” or ““calling over here.”” At this moment in the prayer, the priest
  calls down the Holy Spirit upon the gifts of bread and wine that we have brought to the altar:
  ““Father, we bring you these gifts. We ask you to make them holy by the power of your Spirit, that
  they may become the body and blood of your Son”” (Eucharistic Prayer III). The words of the
  prayer are accompanied by the ritual gesture of the laying on of hands, the ancient sign of the gift
  of the Spirit, which is also used in most sacramental celebrations, from the rite of confirmation to
  the ordination of deacons, priests, and bishops. Liturgists sometimes call this first epiclesis the epi-
  clesis of consecration. Later in the Eucharistic Prayer, there will be another epiclesis, the epiclesis
  of communion, as the priest asks that the Holy Spirit be sent upon us to transform us. ““Grant that
  we, who are nourished by his body and blood, may be filled with his Holy Spirit, and become one
  body, one spirit in Christ”” (Eucharistic Prayer III).
