Eucharist Amazement: May We Never Lose Our Wonder

In this episode we talk about the new pew report that shows only ⅓ of American Catholics believe in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. We share about how we need to renew Eucharistic amazement in tangible ways and share our own experiences of the power of the Eucharist in our lives.

Quote to Ponder - “I would like to rekindle this Eucharistic “amazement”- Saint John Paul II

Scripture for Lectio Divina - John 6:35-36 “Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe.”
