Good morning. Have you taken advantage of the subscription to Formed.org that St Clement has provided for you? Well, you REALLY should. I finished this program on the historical and New Testament origins of the Eucharist last night. It was fascinating. I went into the program thinking I had a pretty good handle on the topic. Well, Dr Pitre showed me otherwise. Even if you think you’ve got it all covered, I bet you’ll find this 10 part program enlightening.
The description of the series:
“”The Lamb of God,” “The Bread of Life,” “The Body and the Blood of Christ”… these are phrases we know from the Mass. But do we understand what they mean in the greater and deeper context of Scripture and Church teaching? Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre rigorously digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching. We’ll discover firsthand how Christ’s Body and Blood are an integral and wondrous part of God’s plan for our salvation.”
