The Holy Eucharist is our most treasured gift of the Church. It is the source and summit of our Christian life and stands above all else. As Advent begins, we wait anxiously for the coming of Jesus. Let us remember that Jesus is truly with us at every Mass in the Holy Eucharist. We receive Him and all the graces He bestows upon us. The Holy Eucharist is a gift of the Church and a gift to you.
Catholic social teaching is always oriented toward upholding the God-given dignity of the human person. The Church’s teachings emerged from Divine revelation and they give us a blueprint to live by in a turbulent and ever-changing society. The Church calls us to care for the poor and the vulnerable, take care of the earth, promote justice, participate in community, and recognize the sanctity of our personhood, both body and soul. Catholic Social Teaching is a gift of the Church and a gift to you.
