The Catholic Catechism says at paragraph 1193 ”Sunday, the “Lord’s Day,” is the principal day for the celebration of the Eucharist because it is the day of the Resurrection. It is the pre-eminent day of the liturgical assembly, the day of the Christian family, and the day of joy and rest from work. Sunday is “the foundation and kernel of the whole liturgical year” (SC 106). 
No matter what else is going on in your life, make sure to attend Sunday Mass and go to Holy Communion as often as possible to gain the full benefits of the Eucharist. This is the core of your life, where the ripple effect from your Catholic faith touches all of your other relationships and activities. Also, pray A Man's Prayer (PDF) it will change your life.
I believe it is important for each of us to regularly attend Mass and Adoration with the Eucharist. I also believe that it is important for husbands and fathers to pray for and WITH their wives and families. I have found that praying for and WITH my wife and family has been a great help in our relationship.
When you go to Mass each Sunday, bring yourselves to the Altar … to the Eucharist … as a living sacrifice. The Mass is not for our entertainmet or a theatrical show; it is not a chance to show off your piety. Rather, it is an opportunity to give yourself completely to God. Come with a heart full of charity, humility, and faith.
There is a reason why the Mass is called "The Sacrifice of the Mass." Come to Mass as a living sacrifice and let the transformation of the Spirit help you become more like Jesus.
Prepare for the upcoming Eucaristic Revival: "Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith: his Real Presence in the Eucharist. The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States."
" ... The rule of 3's says you can't live without air for 3 minutes, without water for 3 days and without food for 3 weeks.
How many Sundays can you go without Holy Communion before you starve to death spiritually?  The Gospel of John has Jesus telling us, "Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood you have no life in you!
There is no Catholicism without the Eucharist!"
~ Bishop Joseph N Perry
