"Eucharist" as an un-articled proper noun
#23
It seems to be a literalization for "thanksgiving". It seems like an attempt to be archaic without it actually being a current usage. It is probably just a trendy thing to say right now.

1644    Bp. J. Taylor Apol. Litvrgie §38  For which ability they should do well to pay their eucharist to the Holy Ghost.
