Apologetics Class on The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist is beginning this weekend!

January 14, 2010

Brothers and sisters,

I am pleased to highlight, one more time, the beginning of our class, Beginning Apologetics:  How to Explain and Defend the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.  Classes begin on January 17, 2010, at 10:20 am in the Science Classroom of the school building (next door to the school library).  Registration for the class can be taken care of online (see the link at the left side of my blog page, https://deaconchip.wordpress.com), or it can be taken care of at the first class.  The registration fee is $15.00, and includes the text for the class (if you already own the text, please let me know).

This class is important, because it will cover the central mystery of our faith: The Eucharist, the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord And Savior Jesus Christ.  Many (perhaps most?) practicing Catholics misunderstand this central doctrine of our faith; even though it is strongly supported by both Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, and by the witness of millions upon millions of Catholic Christians who have preceded us in faith, many do not clearly understand the Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.  As a result, many do not understand the seriousness of that which we undertake at Mass every day!

It is my firm conviction that no one will leave this class unchanged.  If you’ve attended Beginning Apologetics classes in the past, this is one will blow the socks off any of those that have preceded it.  If you haven’t ever attended, this is a perfect time to join!  Nothing is more central to our faith than this truth.  Nothing will have a more profound impact on our lives than a correct appreciation for the truth that is the Eucharist.  Nothing will change a life more than a relationship with Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

So, please join us!  I promise to give it my best effort; I also promise that Christ will not leave you unchanged (in spite of my best efforts!)  Scripture says, “When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with your whole heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13, NAB).  Look for Him.  Come; see if you can find Him in our class.  His words are true; He doesn’t disappoint.  If you’re ready to find Him, He’ll surely find you!

God bless everyone; I hope to see you soon!
