FaithOf Many Things
Sam Sawyer, S.J.
There is a profound grace in submitting ourselves to a rhythm of time that we do not control.
Christine Lenahan
How we partake in the mystery of Christ—kneeling, receiving the host in our hands, or on our tongue—is secondary to the experience of humility and honor in receiving the Eucharist.
FaithFaith and Reason
Louis J. Cameli
What if we brought together two currents: attachment to the Eucharist as liturgical action and devotion with attachment to the Blessed Virgin Mary? The conjunction of these currents can enable them to reinforce each other and can make a significant impact on our spiritual journeys.
Priests participate in a Eucharistic procession through Midtown Manhattan in New York City Oct. 10, 2023. The procession and the Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral that preceded it attracted more than 2,000 people. The services, which concluded with benediction at the cathedral, were affiliated with the Napa Institute's Principled Entrepreneurship Conference taking place in New York City Oct. 10-11.

I love Eucharistic processions—not because they trigger some kind of fond nostalgia for the good old days (how old do you think I am?), but because it is literally Jesus and people following him. What's not to love?

Maybe the crisis of disbelief in the Eucharist is not as dire as previously thought.
