The Eucharist is the culmination of most of the church sacraments. In this week's LINK, Fr. Michael Sorial talks to us about this sacrament and learning to love our enemies through the sacrament of the Eucharist.

Starting with Adam's fall, we rejected God and became enemies of God yet God continues to love us (even if we have been his enemies). Through Jesus we are invited be joined with him in the Eucharist and love even our enemies, as God has loved us.
Jesus calls us to be assembled together "as a church" around the holy sacrament of Eucharist (or the Mystery of Assembly), through love for one another and being in communion with one another, as one church.

 In this week's Link, Fr Michael Sorial talk about an integral part of our journey with Christ: Confession. Through confession, we learn to give up our feeling of superiority and judgmental attitudes so that we can hear Jesus more clearly and easily in our lives.

Fr. Michael starts by describing two truths about confession, then outlines four excuses that we lean on for why we do not need to confess. Finally, Fr Michael wraps up the discussion with the 3 stages of repentance.

With the Lent season upon us, this is a great time for our spiritual journey through repentance and confession.
