Next Upcoming Online Course: The Eucharist

u003cmeta charset=u0022utf-8u0022u003eA short course on the Source and Summit of our Faith

u003cmeta charset=u0022utf-8u0022u003eThe Eucharist is, like so many aspects of our faith, a great mystery.  But to call something a mystery in the theological sense is not to say that we cannot understand anything about it. Instead, it is to say that we can never learn u003cemu003eeverything u003c/emu003eabout it.  A theological mystery is not unintelligible; it is infinitely intelligible.  In other words, even though we can never fully comprehend it, can never just put it in a box and move on, we can always learn more about a theological mystery.  u003cbru003eu003cbru003e In our course together we will look at the multifaceted mystery of the Eucharist through several lenses.  We’ll use Bishop Barron’s wonderful little book, titled simply u003cemu003eEucharistu003c/emu003e, as well as some of my own writings to look at themes like meal, sacrifice, real presence, transubstantiation, Christian Unity, and liturgy.  u003cbru003eu003cbru003eTuesday Nights at 7 PM PT (January 11, 18, 25, February 1, 8, 15)
