Eucharistic Revival +

Friday, March 15, 2024

Jesus said, “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life.”

This teaching was so shocking that many of his followers left at that moment! Jesus did not call them back to clarify, because he knew they understood correctly. He was actually telling them to eat his flesh and drink his blood.

As Catholics, we believe Jesus’ words literally, not symbolically. The substance of the bread and wine transform into the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ at every Mass. We call this miracle the Eucharist.

It's an exciting time to be Catholic! The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to the Eucharist: The greatest gift God has ever given to humanity and the very source of our strength. Encounter the reality of the Real Presence, and fall in love with your faith like never before.
