Mystical Journey Part 4 - Giving Up Enemies - Eucharist

  • Video
  • Audio

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.
