How and Why the Eucharist Changes Us


The Eucharist Invites Us to Slow Down and Be Loved

Sr. Alicia Torres, FE, tells host Katie Prejean McGrady that she's come to see the Eucharist as a person who invites us to slow down and be loved intimately, even when things seem busy and beyond our control.


St. Isaac Jogues, known as the Living Martyr, was a 17th century Jesuit priest from France who suffered mutilation, illness, and ultimately death to bring the Eucharist and the saving love of Jesus to the North American native people. Read more about his devotion to the Eucharist here.
