After two thousand years, the Church has a tremendous number of great resources to learn about the Eucharist. Studying these resources can help deepen our faith, but knowledge is not the goal. We must never lose sight of the Person of Jesus in the Eucharist. We strive to learn so we can better know and love Our Lord.
This page has just a small selection of resources. There is so much more, and additional resources will be added to this page in the future.
If you are looking for a place to start, consider the videos and podcasts. Bp. Robert Barron, Dr. Brant Pitre and Dr. Scott Hahn do a great job of sharing their knowledge and love of the Eucharist.
After the videos and podcasts, consider the meditations by St. John Vianney and St. Alphonsus Liguori. Both are wonderful and express the magnificence of the Eucharist beautifully. They are written to be meditations for Adoration and offer short reflections easy to read in small chunks. The love these saints have for the Eucharist is amazing and truly inspiring.
Finally, the Encyclicals offer great insight into the Eucharist. They are a little more difficult to read, but their depth and richness is beautiful.
