Holy Eucharist Teachings by the Fathers of the Church
Letter to the Smyrnaeans 7, 1 (C. 110 AD):
Fathers of the Church - St. Ignatius of Antioch
"They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer, because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the Flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ, Flesh which suffered for our sins and which the Father, in His goodness, raised up again. They who deny the gift of God are perishing in their disputes."
