Eucharist: Discovering the Mass in the Bible – Dr. Brandt Pitre

7:10-08:45 pm Thursday evenings, Facilitators: Br. Jonah Teller O.P., Ken White

“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?   Join us for Dr. Brant Pitre’s dvd course where we will dig into the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching.  Come discover why the Church refers to the Eucharist as the “source and summit of the Christian life.”
