We spent 5 glorious but busy days in Rome. I celebrated Mass at the alter an tomb of St. Pope John Paul ll. Then two peaceful days in beautiful Assisi. Yesterday was a full day of travel, bus trip back to Rome, fly to Lisbon, bus trip to hotel near Fatima. Today we go to Fatima to visit apparition sites, and homes of 3 children. Think of you and pray for you all every day! With Love and Prayers, Fr. LeRoy

The Sacrament of the Eucharist (Holy Communion)

 

The Source, Center & Summit of Our Faith

This is a big-ee. It always has been. We read in John 6, about how some of Jesus' followers left him over this teaching. But he didn't stop them or try to backtrack or say it was just a symbol. Jesus asked the apostles, as He asks us: Will you abandon Me because this teaching seems too hard?

We believe that when the hosts (small, round pieces of bread) and wine are consecrated by the priest, they become - as Jesus promised - His body and blood. They look and taste like bread and wine but are - by the power of the Holy Spirit - the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Christ. 

When we partake of the Eucharist, we invite Christ to spiritually and literally become part of us, that we might increasingly become more like Him. 

The scripture and theology on this sacrament are awe-inspiring and humbling. Please take some time to learn more from the resources below.

"...for my flesh 

is true food

and my blood

is true drink..."

When many of his disciples heard it,

they said,

“This teaching is difficult; who can accept it?”

But Jesus, being aware that his disciples were complaining about it,

said to them,

“Does this offend you?"

John 66: 55, 60
