Get to Know Jesus Through the Liturgical Year

FR. ED BROOM, OMV ORIGINAL PUBLICATION SOURCE Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ becomes alive and visits us, touches us, and enters us through His Mystical Body, the Church! In the most full sense of the word, Jesus becomes alive in us through the Eucharist. All the actions of the Church and the members of the Mystical Body of Christ converge at the source and summit of the Church in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Before ascending into Heaven, Jesus promised His Presence among us with these words: “Go out to all nations and teach them all that I taught you; baptize them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Behold, I am with you always even until the end of time.” (Mt 28: 19-20) If it is true that Jesus ascended into Heaven and promised that He would be with us always until the end of time, then where is He? The response: He is with us in His Mystical Body, the Church. Specifically, Jesus becomes truly present in the Mass, the Eucharist, and the Sacramental Life. This Sacramental Life of Jesus unfolds every Church Year, Liturgical Year, in the living Liturgical Cycle....

Family, Vocation, Catholic Basics, and More from St. Paul-Inside-the-Walls

This three-session course focuses on the universal call to holiness and our living out of that call—in and through our own personal vocations. Whether married or single, a priest or in consecrated life, each of us has been given a unique mission in building up the Church. In accepting and fulfilling this mission, we often discover opportunities to mentor others and to help them recognize what God is calling them to do as well. Understanding that we are not meant to be lone rangers will not only benefit us spiritually, but should also inspire us to help guide those we encounter in our ministries and daily lives towards an ever-deepening relationship with God and others too. This course meets on three consecutive Wednesdays:  November 3, 10, and 17 at 7:30pm  Register Here Fr. Jared Brogan hosts the last session of Winding Thru Worship.
