Bring the Eucharist into Parish Life
We can’t just talk about Christ’s presence in the Eucharist; we have to believe it, celebrate it, and live it both individually and as a community of the faithful. And we must cultivate a culture in our parishes that treats Real Presence not only as an important Catholic doctrine but also as the most important part of parish identity.
In Becoming Eucharistic People, Timothy P. O'Malley demonstrates how we can reflect Christ's Real Presence to those around us. This helps create sacred spaces in our parishes that allow people to experience a deeper connection to God and to their neighbors.
What Does Real Presence Mean and Why Does It Matter?
Many Catholics don’t believe that Jesus is really present in the Eucharist. Rather, they see the bread and wine of Holy Communion as mere symbols of Christ’s body and blood. Is that disbelief just a misunderstanding or is it a blatant rejection of one of the central beliefs of the faith?
In Real Presence, Timothy P. O’Malley clears up the confusion about the Eucharist and shows you how to learn to love God and neighbor through a deeper understanding of the doctrine of Real Presence.

“If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion.”
—St. Maximillian Kolbe
Catholics believe the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. But, what does this mean? How does it affect 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, 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.
“If we really understood the Mass, we would die of joy.”
— St. John Vianney
Each week, Catholics all over the world fill the pews of their parishes to listen to the Word of God and receive the Eucharist. Even though we are present and participate in the Mass, we may not be fully aware of why the sacred liturgy is the most important act of worship we do as Catholics.
In Ave Explores: The Mass you will learn about the history and structure of the liturgy, how to combat distractions during the service, ways to be a more active participant in the homily, and how the Mass can transform your life.
Join Katie Prejean McGrady and special guests—including Fr. Patrick Mary Briscoe, OP; Deacon Greg Kandra; Timothy P. O’Malley and Susan M. Timoney; Shannon Wimp Schmidt; and Fr. Michael White and Tom Corcoran—for a look at the riches of Catholic worship.
