Details

“Do this in memory of me.” You hear this commandment every week at Mass, but what does it really mean? Now you can discover how to become the Eucharist as Christ desired.

The celebration of the Eucharist is one of the most sacred and ancient traditions in Christianity. The very first Christians gathered together and ate “agape feasts,” sharing and encouraging one another in remembrance of Christ. This tradition has evolved into our modern sacrament of communion, and Catholics rightly consider the Eucharist to be the heart of our faith.

At the Last Supper, Jesus gave us His own Body to eat and Blood to drink, but what did he mean when he gave us this commandment? Is it simply remembering and making present what Jesus did at that Supper? Or does this command have larger implications?

Under Fr. Crosby’s guidance, you will discover the reason we call it a celebration of the Eucharist. You will uncover a fuller meaning and challenge in the gift of the Eucharist through Scripture, the early Fathers, and Liturgy. Through the actions and words of the Church and the example of such inspiring figures as St. Francis of Assisi and Archbishop Oscar Romero.

Over the course of these lectures, you will deepen your relationship with Christ and reinvigorate your participation in Mass and communion. By becoming the Eucharist we celebrate, you will understand what it means to live a truly Christian life.

I will be listening repeatedly! Review by Jacqueline

My two favorites by Fr. Crosby were on pilgrimage, and on the Eucharist. I will be listening repeatedly - with his humility, and his learning - I feel like I can safely model my Catholic life on his teaching since he is so close to Christ. (Posted on 9/3/15)

* Review by Vincent Gibbons, Clayton, MO, USA
Quality
Participating in this course has revolutionized my attendance at Mass and my approach to my religion - super new information presented cogently, and in a way that lets me incorporate it into my life immediately. Fr. Crosby's "Becoming the Beloved Disciple" is a close #2. (Posted on 4/13/15)
* Review by Sister Rose Therese Di Gregorio O.S.F.
Quality
The CD "Becoming the Eucharist We Celebrate" has been one of the most comprehensive, easy to understand courses on the Eucharist I have ever had. I have facilitated this retreat a number of times and the participants absolutely love it (and so do I)! Thank you and God bless you for your contemporary theology. I have purchased over 10 of your retreats/CD's/DVD's. and have been always satisfied. God bless you for "feeding the hungry" with your contemporary theology. (Posted on 4/13/15)
Very Insightful Review by Charles Erdeljac, Ph.D.
Quality
In his talks Fr. Dan Crosby invites us to be a pilgrim people on a journey to become a Eucharistic people. He blends insights from both his mind and heart by a balance of scholarly references and personal stories that touch the listener’s mind and heart. As a result, we more fully realize the Gospel call and the Commission at the end of Mass to go out into the world to share the love of God everyday, wherever we live and work with others. (Posted on 10/1/12)
Best Explanation of the Eucharist Review by Sr. Mary Thomas Reichl, SCSC
Quality
“Becoming the Eucharist We Celebrate” is the best explanation I have ever come across of what Eucharist is and means to us. In language that everyone can understand, Fr. Dan gives the clearest explanation of why Jesus left us the Eucharist: to bless, break and share as a symbol of who we are to be for one another. He explains the need for our conversion to this ACTION, leaving us with a deeper understanding and gratitude for the great gift of Eucharist. (Posted on 10/1/12)
Great Presentation of the Eucharist Review by Albert Haase, OFM
Quality
Following in the footprints of his spiritual father, Francis of Assisi, Capuchin Franciscan Dan Crosby has spent much time praying and living the Eucharist. In this audio series, he insightfully reminds usand challenges us to think of the Eucharist not simply as an object to be adored but as a lifestyle to be ACTED upon and lived. (Posted on 10/1/12)
Great application of the Euchrarist Review by Kingdom Mystic
Quality
Fr. Crosby gets to the real heart of Euchrarist from the call "to become what we are" to the call to action; he masterfully weaves the history of the meaning Euchrarist throughout the church age. It was refreshing to hear about he personally came to the importance of what Euchrarist means to him. I would enthusiasticly recommend this to anyone! (Posted on 9/6/12)
