What’s in a Name??

Posted by on Jun 27, 2011 in blog

As you may have heard us mention (just a few times) before…the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life (CCC #1324)!  In order to explore that mystery a little further, we felt it appropriate after the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ to offer a reflection on some of the different names for the Eucharist.  What does it mean to be the “Source + Summit” of the Christian Life?  The Eucharist is the totius vitae christianae fons et culmen;...
