A recent Pew Research Center survey found that only one-third of U.S. Catholics believe that the Eucharist is truly the Body and Blood of Christ. The Gospel Weeklies naturally link to the Sunday Mass and the Eucharist. Every lesson now also includes a quotation from Scripture, Church teaching, or a pope, saint, or other model of faithful living to promote belief in the Real Presence of Christ in Holy Communion. These quotes appear in the student lessons to benefit them and their parents.
We have collected Eucharist quotes, reflections, videos, and articles to share with your students, families, and parishes here. Parishes may share the quotes and reflections in their parish bulletins or on their websites.
