A Study on the Eucharist
On October 13, the Marian Fellowship Group, will host a weekly study on the Eucharist. Meetings will take place at 7:00 PM in Cahill Meeting Room 3.
Participants are asked to purchase their own copies of the books which we will be studying.
We will first study Father Louis J. Cameli’s book: Bread of Life, exploring the presence of Eucharist in our Lives. Father Cameli’s book focuses on the role that the Eucharist takes in Catholic life. Father Cameli gives a personal account of the role of the Eucharist in his own life, explores what Jesus wanted to give us when he gave us the Eucharist by considering chapter six of John’s account of the Gospel, and considers central human questions such as death and human sexuality through the lens of the Eucharist. Reflection questions are included so that readers may reflect on the book on their own or in discussion with others.
Next, we will study Vinny Flynn’s book: 7 Secrets of the Eucharist. Pope John Paul II referred to the Holy Eucharist as “the greatest treasure of the Church,” and yet even many devoted Catholics have a very limited understanding of this powerful sacrament. This book will change all that. The reader will come away with a completely new awareness that the Eucharist is not just about receiving Communion; it’s about transforming your daily life. Deeply based on the Scriptures, the writings of the Saints, and the teachings of our two most recent Popes, this profound and remarkably readable book will introduce you to some of the “hidden” truths of the Eucharist — truths that have always been embraced by theologians, saints, and mystics, but have rarely been passed on to the average person in a meaningful way. In
7 Secrets of the Eucharist, these truths are finally made accessible to all, as author Vinny Flynn shows how each reception of Holy Communion can be a life-changing experience. No matter how much or how little you already know about the Eucharist, the “secrets” revealed here will bring you to a new, personal “Emmaus” experience, again and again. 7 Secrets of the Eucharist will rekindle the “Eucharistic amazement” called for by Pope John Paul II.
