The Greatest Gift: The Eucharist, Part I

This is my body…this cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.”

Matthew 26:26-28
Mark 14:22-24
Luke 22:14-20
Cf. 1 Corinthians 11:23-25


The Eucharist we receive is the Body and Blood of Jesus.  It is the Sacrifice of Jesus giving his life for us on the Cross so that our sins may be forgiven.  The Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith.  Because the Eucharist is so important, we are in the midst of a three-year Eucharistic Revival in our country.  Here in Part I, Fr. Jeff begins with an introduction to the Eucharist and then explores what Jesus says about the Eucharist.

Here are the slides for Part I.
