For my keynote talk at the 2020 L.A. Religious Education Congress, I spoke about the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Vatican II says that the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. However, recent polls show a widespread misunderstanding of the Eucharist and a massive failure in communicating the doctrine of the Real Presence. It is time for all of us—Catholic catechists, educators, and evangelists—to pick up our game about this absolutely essential sacrament! ———LINKS——— Resources on the Eucharist: 🤍🤍wordonfire.org/presence/ Bishop Barron's Book on the Eucharist: 🤍bookstore.wordonfire.org/products/eucharist-2nd-ed Word on Fire: 🤍🤍wordonfire.org/ Word on Fire Institute: 🤍wordonfire.institute/ FREE Daily Gospel Reflections (English or Español): 🤍dailycatholicgospel.com/ ———WATCH——— Subscribe to this Channel: 🤍bit.ly/31LV1sn Word on Fire Institute Channel: 🤍bit.ly/2voBZMD Word on Fire en Español Channel: 🤍bit.ly/2uFowjl ———SOCIAL MEDIA——— Bishop Barron Instagram: 🤍bit.ly/2Sn2XgD Bishop Barron Facebook: 🤍bit.ly/2Sltef5 Bishop Barron Twitter: 🤍bit.ly/2Hkz6yQ Word on Fire Instagram: 🤍bit.ly/39sGNyZ Word on Fire Facebook: 🤍bit.ly/2HmpPpW Word on Fire Twitter: 🤍bit.ly/2UKO49h Word on Fire en Español Instagram: 🤍bit.ly/38mqofD Word on Fire en Español Facebook: 🤍bit.ly/2SlthaL Word on Fire en Español Twitter: 🤍bit.ly/38n3VPt ———SUPPORT WORD ON FIRE——— Donate: 🤍🤍wordonfire.org/donate/ Word on Fire Store: 🤍store.wordonfire.org/ Pray: 🤍bit.ly/2vqU7Ft
God The Son Jesus Christ started The Catholic Church. He appointed His apostles first Pope/Priests, gave THEM His authority, instituted Sacraments and commanded them to spread His Church Infallibly to the world. Jn UzCPu_lEhe8&t=1m42s 1:42 , Mk UzCPu_lEhe8&t=3m14s 3:14 -19, Mt UzCPu_lEhe8&t=16m18s 16:18 -19. The Transubstantiation occurs only in a Catholic Mass. He said unless we eat of His Body and drink His Blood in Holy Communion, we will never enter Heaven. Jn UzCPu_lEhe8&t=6m52s 6:52 ,54-59 When we receive The Eucharist it brings us closer to Jesus, strengthens and nurtures us.
Yes.....What God says is. He is the Word Made Flesh. 🙏🏻 How precious are the WORDS of the Consecration-to hear. How awesome to hear the WORDS .. slowly bringing us HOME drawing us into relationship with Him. 🙏🏻 Amen 🙏🏻
That was truly good! Glad I listened I'm finding the bible more and more very interesting❣😃✌
I thank God I have herd this vidéo.
Thank you bishop Barron for this sermon, a reminder of all the basic things I was taught at grade school, true yesterday, today an forever.
I've been prepping for our Confirmation retreat this weekend, and getting across the importance of the Eucharist is something that always weighs heavy on my heart. Really getting the presence of Christ in the Eucharist is so integral to our faith that I don't want to get it wrong. Thanks for this lecture. I've taken notes, and I'm reviewing Thomas Aquinas and Flannery O'Connor in my Pivotal Players book. Bishop Barron, I love your lectures, and it was a pleasure to hear you in person in Orlando.
Luke 24, John 6 - Compelling and magnetic power of Jesus
Emperors had imagos ... but Jesus was His "presence' not His image. 😇🙏
I love you In Jesus Christ B Barron . Glory glory to God
The real presence of Jesus is inside of me.
As a Protestant I firmly believe in transubstantiation and no one could change my mind.
It started very promising with the exegesis of John 6 and hinting at what the eating of body and drinking of blood image might have singified in the Judaic tradition at the time of Jesus. This part ot the talk would deserve developing further, since it might lead to fuller understanding of Jesus's words and consequently, of the Eucharist. In the latter part of the talk it was a very a clear and convincing laying out of the continuity of Church's teaching, but sadly, this was mostly descriptive rather than argumentative and the usual questions remained unanswered. If the presence of Jesus in Eucharist is 'unsurpassable', does it mean that the meeting with Jesus in heaven will be akin to a pious participation in the Eucharist? Most people would probably say they hope for a much fuller encounter at the end of times, but maybe this is not to be expected? If a fuller encounter is to be expected, then surely Jesus is not present in the Eucharist fully in the highest sense of the word, so can we say in exactly which regards is the Eucharistic presence lacking? Paradoxically, even in the legend mentioned, Jesus spoke to Thomas Aquinas in the form of an appeared figure rather than in the form of Eucharistic species ‒ well, that amounts to implicitely conceding that there is something more to Jesus's presence than the Eucharistis species. Additionally, what remained completely undeveloped in this talk is the question of what it actually means to take part in the Eucharist, or to do 'this' in Jesus's memory. Implicitely, it was assumed throughout the talk that 'this' corresponds to the eating and drinking of the transubstantiated species in the way Catholics customarily do. However, the Eucharist was instituted in close conjunction with Jesus's self-sacrifice, and here again it would help to delve deeper into the Judaic symbolism of the time to understand if the institution of Eucharist at the Last Supper was not predominantly meant to implore the desciples to actively take share in Jesus's mission and fate. I would love to hear a nuanced refutation of the argument that to 'eat Jesus's body and drink Jesus's blood' predominantly means to fully align one's entire being and life with Jesus's self-sacrificial redemption of the humanity. As far as I know the official teaching of the Catholic church indeed says that taking Eucharistic species is helpful or even instrumental in aligning one's life and being with Jesus's sacrifice and redemptive work, but somehow it stops short of saying that the life of a person fully aligned with Jesus's mission (a.k.a. that of a saint), so to say the consequence of many prayers, sacrifices and Eucharistic encounters, might be a fuller version of Jesus's presence among us than the Eucharist itself ‒ a Eucharist fully developed, so to say.
Was it a metaphor when Jesus told the woman at the well whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst?
I am a Anglican by birth, brought up in a Catholic Convent tradition, with my mother i attended the Orthodox Church. With so much of institutional religiosity, i understand n believe that on receiving the Eucharist i am receiving JESUS, THE LORD GOD JESUS.. Isn't that the real Truth about this discussion of Bishop Baron.. therefore, i dare not receive Jesus into my body, if i feel or know i am unclean, when i am helplessly a sinner will i not say Jesus forgive me my sin, which only you can and cleanse the person i am, will i not say my house is a mess Lord i want to clean it up but i need ur help.
So then for me, " Lord I am trying hard to cleanse myself, help me, i am trying hard to be clean enough to welcome you, help me. Enter into me Lord Jesus, i belong to Thee, in the state that i am. I want you not Theology to prove it to me.
So Respected Bishop, if that is an ok approach that Jesus will accept, why why this trying to prove flesh, blood, living dead, culture tradition. .
Please teach me how to receive Him, not confuse the issues.
Respected Bishop please reply if i am right or wrong , because for me Jesus is my Savior n Redeemer. I need to be one with Him.
I appreciate and believe in the Eucharistic real presence. Yet have to ask is God in Christ “more”present there than in any other time and place?
Amen 🙏 🙏 🙏
Proud to be catholic amen god bless you 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
I started Lives every day at 3am praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I invite you to join me. Jesus I trust in you. This Bishop is one of my inspirations todo that.
