Eucharist

Sacrament of the Eucharist Online Catholic Resources

Year of the Eucharist Online Catholic ResourcesThe Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Most Blessed Sacrament, Communion, the Lord's Supper, the Sacrament of the Eucharist. By whatever name, the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life, the pinnacle of Catholic experience this side of heaven.

The on-line eucharistic resources that we are assembling here (growing on a daily basis) were originally assembled in honor of the Year of the Eucharist proclaimed by Pope John Paul II but are continually augmented and updated. They constitute an assortment of tools that will help you unpack the profound meaning of the Roman Catholic Mass theologically, historically and practically. They range from Papal documents to contemporary articles on the Sacrament of the Eucharist to very manageable eucharistic selections from Fathers and Doctors of the Church and even include prayers for before Mass, after Mass, and in front of the tabernacle during adoration. Many of these eucharistic resources may be downloaded as PDF files,copied and distributed as free handouts on the Holy Eucharist which can be worked into RCIA or catechism lesson plans as well as study group sessions.

 

The following on-line eucharistic resources touch on various topics relative to the Sacrament of the Eucharist: the real presence of Christ's body and blood under the forms of bread and wine in the blessed sacrament, why the Roman Catholic Mass is both meal and truly a sacrifice, practical tips on getting more out of the mass, and finally reflections upon and resources for eucharistic adoration and other kinds of prayer leading to or flowing from the Eucharist.
