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.
Jesus Christ calls us all to live lives of service and love. By founding schools, hospitals, and numerous other charities throughout history, the Church has heeded that call. The Catholic Church is one of the largest charitable donors in the world, and we have the Church to thank for many high-quality places of education and healthcare. Catholic schools/charities/hospitals are a gift of the Church and a gift to you.
