Celebrate the greatest sign of Christ’s presence with us: the Eucharist.

As summarized in Vatican II, the Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life” (Lumen Gentium, 11). In this concise course, you will explore the history, practice, and importance of the Eucharist. Whether you are a lifelong Catholic or a newcomer, you are sure to find new insights in these lectures.

This 2-disc program makes a perfect gift. It is also ideal for group discussion, and it is an invaluable additional to any parish library. You may wish to consider purchasing multiple copies.

Your guide is Fordham University professor Rev. Thomas Scirghi, S.J., Ph.D. Under his guidance, you will explore the importance of Thanksgiving, the scriptural roots of the Eucharist in the Last Supper, the ideas of presence and sacrifice, and the story of Emmaus. You will also come to understand the four-fold presence of Christ in the Liturgy: in the Eucharistic elements, Word, minister, and assembly.

In studying the ritual, as well as the roots and development of the Eucharist in the Church’s history, you will understand the celebration of the Eucharist as never before. This is a truly essential course for Christians of all ages and positions: students, pastors, and lifelong learners alike will find these lectures enlightening. Explore this “summary of our faith” today.
