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.
Pope Saint John Paul II said that “In reading the Catechism of the Catholic Church, we can perceive the wonderful unity of the mystery of God...” The Catechism is a comprehensive summary of Catholic faith, morals, and doctrine. It provides historical and scriptural context to help the faithful understand and easily access what the Church holds and teaches throughout the world. The Catechism is a gift of the Church and a gift to you.
