Holy Eucharist Teachings by the Fathers of the Church
Fathers of the Church -  Origen (c. 185 - 254 A.D.)

"But if that text (Lev 24:5-9) is taken to refer to the greatness of what is mystically symbolized, then there is a 'commemoration' which has an effect of great propitiatory value. If you apply it to that 'Bread which came down from heaven and gives life to the world,' that shewbread which 'God has offered to us as a means of reconciliation, in virtue of faith, ransoming us with his blood,' and if you look to that commemoration of which the Lord says, 'Do this in commemoration of me,' then you will find that this is the unique commemoration which makes God propitious to men." (Homilies on Leviticus 9)
