Tag synonym suggestions

Why are there different tags for communion and eucharist? I guess I don't know whether they are different. I always thought they were just different names for the same thing.

  • Because no one has voted to accept my tag synonym!!

This tag issue has already been brought up in this answer to another thread. We just need a moderator to start implementing some of those.

There is one context that eucharist is different than communion but I don't think we've considered it important. I believe the term can be used specifically to refer to the host (the bread?) as opposed to the overall celebration of the sacrament. For the purpose of tagging, I don't think it's distinction we need to make.
