Jesus and the Eucharist
The Eucharistic Revival is a movement across the United States to increase not only our knowledge of the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist but also to inspire a deeper love and devotion for Jesus and his gift to us of holy communion. We are in the second year of the Eucharistic Revival. This is the year where, at the parish level, we help form and inspire a lived belief in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. In September, St. Michael had a three-day exhibit of Eucharistic miracles. The people who attended were greatly impacted by what they read. God uses miracles to help increase our belief in Him.
Starting in January, St. Michael will run a seven-week series titled “Jesus and the Eucharist.” According to the National Committee for the Eucharistic Revival: “During this time of Eucharistic Revival, Jesus invites us to encounter him in our life stories. Together, we’ll explore the story of salvation as told through Scripture, fulfilled in the death and resurrection of Jesus and lived out in the Church and the Sacraments—especially the Eucharist. At the conclusion of this series, participants will be empowered to live out the Gospel in their own lives and share its message of hope with others.” Each session will have a video followed by small group discussions/reflections. To help make this a success, we will need table hosts to help facilitate the discussion. The role of the table host is not a leader but a person who helps keep the discussion flowing, allowing it to bear the most fruit.
How does one become a table host? The National Committee for the Eucharistic Revival has created a short online training session for those interested in being a table host. Since the training is online, it is flexible to your schedule. If you’re interested or if you want more information, please fill out the interest form down below or contact me.
