Holy Thursday: The Night That Changed the World

On the night before His death, His betrayer already at work, our Lord lifted a simple chalice in a world covered in darkness. Elevating it, He sealed for eternity a new covenant between God and man, imparting to us the gift of His Body and Blood.

In these sublime meditations on the events of Holy Thursday, Nobel laureate François Mauriac reminds us of the ineffable value of the gift given us that evening in the Upper Room: the Eucharist, present still in the tabernacles of the world...where Christ waits patiently for us to visit Him, pray with Him, and receive fullness of life from Him.

To read these stirring pages is to rejoice again in the fact that Christ has not left us orphans. He remains with us at all times in the Eucharist, without which we can never attain true peace. As Mauriac notes, “No man knows himself, if he has not looked at his soul in the light of the Host lifted above the ciborium.”

Come, then, into the heart of this mystery of our Faith. Take your seat at the table beside our Lord. Learn why millions of souls believe that Christ is physically present in their local church, and discover the joy they experience when they meet Him there. You, too, can have the strength, the hope, and the consolation Christ gives to all who place themselves beside Him.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist: Unlocking the Secrets of the Last Supper

For fans of Scott Hahn's work comes this thought-provoking examination of the Eucharist and its origins in ancient Hebrew tradition.

In this insightful work, Dr. Brant Pitre shines the light of the Old Testament and ancient Judaism on the words and deeds of Jesus to reveal the historical and theological roots of the Eucharist.

Using his in-depth knowledge of Judaism at the time of Jesus, Dr. Pitre shows how the Jewish hope for a New Exodus and the coming of the Messiah in first century Palestine correlates to the very communion Catholics participate in today.
