The Host in Christian worship is the consecrated bread or wafer of the Eucharist, received or taken in Communion.

The word "host" is from the Old French term hoiste, from Latin hostia "sacrificial victim".
We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle. Hebrews 13:10
