“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.
