Next Upcoming Online Course: The Eucharist
A short course on the Source and Summit of our Faith
The 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 everything about 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.
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 Eucharist, as well as some of my own writings to look at themes like meal, sacrifice, real presence, transubstantiation, Christian Unity, and liturgy.
Tuesday Nights at 7 PM PT (January 11, 18, 25, February 1, 8, 15)
