“If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion.”
—St. Maximillian Kolbe
Catholics believe that the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith, but what does this really mean and what difference does it make in our lives?
This season of Ave Explores will consider the mystery of the Eucharist, how it heals and changes us, and what it means to welcome the Eucharistic Lord into our hearts, homes, and neighborhoods.
Join host Katie Prejean McGrady and special guests including Fr. Craig Vasek, Sr. Alicia Torres, FE, Joel Stepanek, Fr. Ryan Rojo, Heather and Jake Khym, Kathryn and Scott Whitaker, Timothy P. O’Malley, and eight priests who are preachers on behalf of the National Eucharistic Congress as they explore the mystery, meaning, and majesty of the Christ’s Real Presence.
