Material Overview

Eucharist: Discovering the Mass in the Bible features a unique style of study through the Lectio series which engages participants mind, faith, experience, and imagination, leading you beyond simply reading to truly read, reflect, and respond. Groups will discover the powerful and personal truth of God’s Word and practical inspiration in their lives in ten sessions.


About the Program

In the second release of the LECTIO series, renowned teacher Dr. Brant Pitre guides us through Scripture, history, and Church teaching to illuminate the wonder and miracle of the Eucharist.

Jesus said, “This is my Body” and “This is my Blood.” Some say they’re merely symbols of remembrance. Others say they’re really the Body and Blood of Christ, but can’t explain how that’s possible. The Eucharist is the center-point of the Mass – but why?

The answers are here. With deep insight, Dr. Pitre gives a fresh perspective for understanding the mystery that is the Eucharist.

Dr. Brant Pitre is Professor of Sacred Scripture at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans, Louisiana. He earned his Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Notre Dame, where he specialized the study of the New Testament and ancient Judaism. He is the author of several articles and the popular books, including Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist and Jesus the Bridegroom.  Dr. Pitre is an extremely enthusiastic and engaging speaker who lectures regularly across the United States.
