PODCAST | The Mystery of the Eucharist



In today’s podcast, Fr. Javier del Castillo shares a reflection on the mystery of the Eucharist, the memorial of Christ’s sacrifice of infinite love, that we can use for our prayer as we celebrate and contemplate today the beautiful gift of the Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi).

Saint Josemaria explains: “Eternal happiness begins now for the Christian who is comforted with the definitive manna of the Eucharist. This is the Good News. News, because it speaks to us of a deep love which we never could have dreamed of. Good, because there is nothing better than uniting ourselves to God, the greatest Good of all. It is Good News, because in an inexplicable way it gives us a foretaste of heaven” (Christ is Passing By, no. 152).
