The Eucharist: Source and Summit of Christian Life(37 min) It looks like bread and wine, yet it is called the Real Presence of Jesus. It is also called the Eucharist, but many Catholics would struggle to explain what that word means. What do Catholics really believe about the Sacrament of the Eucharist, and why has it become the center point of the Mass and our lives as Catholics? ADULTS | YOUNG ADULTS | RCIA | TEENS

Jesus and the Eucharist - In the midst of the roaring waves of today's times, Jesus Christ invites us to return to the Source and Summit of our faith—his Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharistic Revival is a national movement to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. FORMED is proud to accompany the USCCB as we reinvigorate the Church in her understanding of and love for Our Lord in this sacrament.

The INCREDIBLE Eucharistic Miracles with Fr.

It’s true! And I brought Fr. Robert Spitzer back to tell us about the incredible science behind them. You’ll also get a primer on the metaphysics of the Eucharist, what “transubstantiation” means and the incredible stories of several Eucharistic miracles! Hearing Fr. Spitzer talk about these topics was incredibly helpful for my Faith, and I hope it will be so for you, as well. ADULTS | YOUNG ADULTS | RCIA
