Dont mix Catholicism with Islam.They have nothing in common. Your writings on the Holy Eucharist sound like Dan Browne's writings on Jesus Christ in Da Vinci Code.


Read Luke Chapter 22 verses 15-20
----------------------------------------------------
And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide [it] among yourselves:
For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and broke it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.


Also read 1 Cor 11 verses 23-26
-----------------------------------------------
For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.


This is the real significance of the Christian Eucharistic celebration and the priest repeats excatly these words given above, obeying the command given be Jesus himself (Luke 22:19 ..do in remembrance of me). I can't find a connection between your so called false sun-moon-star gods and this. How you came to this conclusion ? Eucharistic celebration was always there in all the early true churches. Maybe you belong churches that do not have have /or looks down upon the eucharistic celebration.However you are correct about the meaning of "host" , it means victim or sacrifice. Jesus was offered as a sacrificial victim so that the sins of mankind be forgiven. And this is the corner stone of the Christian faith, that Jesus was the son of God and we are saved by his death on the cross, provided we confess this.
Maybe you belong churches that do not have have eucharistic celebration.

May the Lord my God give you wisdom.
