Communion (religion)

The bond uniting Christians as individuals and groups with each other and with Jesus is described as communion.


The term is derived from Latin communio (sharing in common).[1]

This basic meaning of the word predates its Christian uses. In Ancient Greek, κοινωνία could apply to a business partnership, to fellowship of life in marriage, to a spiritual relationship with divinity, to comradely fellowship between friends, to a community or society.[2]
