Please take a moment to read Bishop Serratelli's Pastoral Letter on the Holy Eucharist.

Bishop SerratelliBishop Serratelli's new Pastoral Letter.

"On the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, I wish to offer you some theological, historical and practical reflections on the Eucharist. The Eucharist is “the culmination of the spiritual life and the goal of all the sacraments” (Summa Theol., III, q. 66, a. 6). Our rediscovery of this mystery opens us to the rich and inexhaustible gift of divine life. When we come to the Eucharist reverently and worthily, “we draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation (Is 12:3). In this mystery of the Eucharist, we are renewed and the Church herself grows. For this purpose, I offer the following pastoral instruction."
