Faith Series - Eucharistic Adoration (Scouting)

Posted on: September 22, 2022

Eucharistic Adoration is when Jesus, in the form of the Consecrated Host, is placed inside the Monstrance in a clear window for us to see. Jesus is seen in the form of a white host, a white circle, in the clear window at the center of the Monstrance. It is a special time of prayer before the Eucharistic presence of Jesus. Adoration is showing that we know God is truly God, our Savior, and the creator of everything that exists. A beautiful 3 inch patch is available for the activity.

Ave Explores: The Mass

Posted on: September 22, 2022

Each week, Catholics all over the world fill the pews of their parishes to listen to the Word of God and receive the Body and Blood of Christ—the Eucharist.

In Ave Explores: The Mass you will learn about the history and structure of the liturgy, how to combat distractions during the service, ways to be a more active participant in the homily, and how the Mass can transform your life. Join Katie Prejean McGrady and special guests—including Fr. Patrick Mary Briscoe, OP; Deacon Greg Kandra; theologians Tim O’Malley and Susan M. Timoney; pastoral minister Shannon Wimp Schmidt; and authors Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran—for a multimedia look at the riches of Catholic worship.

Take, Bless, Break, Share: A Strategy for a Eucharistic Revival

Posted on: September 7, 2022

by Cardinal Blase J. Cupich (Twenty-Third Publications, 2022) “Active participation in Eucharistic worship is the primary way in which we experience our transformation in Christ.” Reviving and enlivening our encounter with the person of Jesus is a lifelong journey. In these five sessions, Cardinal Blase Cupich proposes five strategies to help Catholics deepen this encounter through a profound experience of the Eucharist—one that leads to living rich, faith-filled lives. Perfect for parish-wide and small group sharing, each session features thoughtful questions for reflection and conversation, and encourages Catholics to ponder and pray about their participation in Christ’s abundant gift of the Eucharist and its connection to daily life in a complex world.

Sacraments 101: Eucharist (how we receive)

Posted on: September 7, 2022

Busted Halo’s Sacraments 101 series Should Catholics receive communion on the hand or on the tongue? And how exactly are we supposed to do that reverently? Is there any other acceptable response besides “Amen?” …and what does “amen” mean anyway? These questions and more are answered in this edition of “Sacraments 101,” a web video series geared for those who’d like an introduction or refresher course on these important, tangible Catholic experiences of God. The Church calls the Eucharist the “summit and source of our faith,” so it would seem pretty important to understand the basics about receiving this sacrament when we go to Mass.
