​Eucharist

Add Content Block

​​More than half of current Catholics do not know the Church’s teaching on the “real presence of Christ” in the Eucharist. While it is a ineffable mystery, Vatican II called the Eucharist the “source and summit of the Christian life.”  Delve into the mystery of Christ's presence in your life, and the centrality of the Eucharist as an important part of that presence.

​This fresh look at the Eucharist brings to light its reality as sacred meal, the sacrifice necessary for communion with God, and the Real Presence of Christ.

This video-based study program can be experienced individually or in a group.  Groups meet for six 90-mintue sessions to explore the Eucharist as sacred meal, which is foreshadowed in many parts of the Old Testament, the once-and-for-all sacrifice that reunited humanity with God, and the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ, present through transubstantiation.  

Each session includes video viewing and small group discussion of the Study Guide questions. Participants read the commentary in the Study Guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. Each section provides “Questions for Understanding" based on the video presentation and references from Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, plus the “Questions for Application" that help you reflect on how the material is relevant to your own life and experience.  This preparation can be done either before or after they view the video, as the Commentary in each lesson is very detailed. The Study Guide Commentary was written by Bishop Barron and two Word on Fire staff members, who also hold Masters of Theology degrees, Rozann Lee and Robert Mixa.

The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for lay discussion leaders, including the DVD, study guide, facilitator guide, answer key, and Bishop Barron’s book, The Eucharist.

Leaders can also register for a free training webinar which teaches the best ways to run an effective Eucharist study group.

​Lesson IV: Real Presence, Part II

​The Church professes in faith that the presence of Christ in the Eucharist is a real presence. This means that the body, blood, soul, and divinity of our Lord, the whole Christ, is truly, really, and substantially contained in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist. The presence of Christ is real, but it is not empirically verifiable.  We accept it through the eyes of faith, but use our reason to better understand this truth.
