Eucharist

$ 19.95 USD


For many Catholics today, the Eucharist is merely a symbol of Christ, and the Mass is merely a collectivity of like-minded individuals gathering to remember his life. But the truth of what is made present on the altar, and what the faithful dare to receive into their bodies and souls, is far more strange and beautiful.

In this engaging theological treatise, Bishop Robert Barron offers a reintroduction to the ancient meaning and power of the Eucharist. Through a threefold analysis of the Eucharist as sacred meal, sacrifice, and Real Presence—distinct but tightly interwoven motifs grounded in Scripture—Bishop Barron draws readers into the profound truth flowing out of Jesus’ words at the Last Supper: “Take, eat; this is my body. . . . Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant.” We are not merely invited to remember Jesus or imitate his moral example; we are invited to the grace of communion—and ultimately, to the realm of God—by eating and drinking the very self that he offers in sacrifice.

Study individually or in a Group

 

You can watch the Eucharist DVD and then probe more deeply into Bishop Barron’s message by using the companion Study Guide, which is divided into sections that correspond to each part of Bishop Barron's presentation. The Study Guide was written by Word on Fire staff members who hold Theology degrees, Rozann Lee and Robert Mixa, under the direction and approval of Bishop Barron.

Each section provides “Questions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation and references from Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and “Questions for Reflection" that help you reflect on how the material is relevant to your own life and experience.

For group study, you can present the program in six  90-minute sessions. Each session includes DVD viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions.  Participants should prepare the questions on their own after viewing the DVD but before the small group discussion.

The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for lay discussion leaders, including the DVD, lessons, facilitator guide, answer key and the companion book by Bishop Barron, Eucharist. In addition, leaders can access free, downloadable promotional materials and other tools using the “Support Materials” tab above..
