Join St. Mary’s Men’s Group on Monday evenings for a deeper look at the Eucharist, the source and summit of our Catholic faith.
Using a brand-new National Eucharistic Revival study, Bread of Life: The Eucharist in Galilee, we will see that Christ’s teaching about the Eucharist was not reserved solely for the Last Supper. Rather, this profound Mystery is the crescendo of Jesus’ entire ministry – all his work in Galilee prepared for and pointed to the Eucharist. Bread of Life: The Eucharist in Galilee is a 5-part series about Jesus’ teaching on the Eucharist. The video episodes will be viewed together to guide the group discussion.

Topic: One Greater Than Moses (Take Heart I AM)
After seeing many of Jesus’ mighty deeds, he pushes his disciples to better understand his identity from the great signs they have witnessed. Reflecting on these words, “Take heart, I AM, have no fear”, we discover the power of Jesus’ words and actions.

Topic: Scandalous Teachings or the Words of Life?
Jesus’ words and teachings scandalize some listeners and many turn away. Questioning the disciples, and us today, Jesus asks for a response of faith.

Topic: The Multiplication in the Decapolis
Jesus travels into the primarily Gentile region of the Decapolis, and again multiplies the loaves to feed the multitudes. This miracle continues to demonstrate the fullness of Jesus Eucharistic mission, and opens up the way for all, Jew and Gentile, and us today, to participate.

Topic: Eyes to See and Ears to Hear (The True Bread)
In spite of everything they have seen, the disciples still do not fully understand that Jesus is God, and Jesus continues to challenge their blindness, deafness and lack of understanding. Yet, eyes and ears of faith are necessary for the disciples, and us today, when Jesus gives us his Body and Blood in the Eucharist.
