Talk title and description:
Becoming Eucharistic People: The Call to Communion with the Eucharistic Lord
If you talk to people on the way out the door, they often wonder why they really need the Church in their lives. In this talk, we will think about the gift of the Church as a space where we are called to communion with Jesus Christ and with one another. It is this communion of love shared in the Church, which is an unimaginable source of happiness: the kind of happiness that you want to share unto the ends of the world.
