Do this in memory of me. This commandment is spoken every week at Catholic Mass, but what does it really mean? Now you can discover how to become the Eucharist as Christ desired. The celebration of the Eucharist is one of the most sacred and ancient traditions in Christianity. The very first Christians gathered together and ate ´´agape feasts´´, sharing and encouraging one another in remembrance of Christ. This tradition has evolved into our modern sacrament of communion, and Catholics rightly consider the Eucharist to be the heart of their faith. At the Last Supper, Jesus gave his own Body to eat and Blood to drink, but what did he mean when he gave this commandment? Is it simply remembering and making present what Jesus did at that supper? Or does this command have larger implications? Under Fr. Crosby´s guidance, you will discover the reason it is called a celebration of the Eucharist. You will uncover a fuller meaning and challenge in the gift of the Eucharist through Scripture, the early Fathers, and Liturgy. Through the actions and words of the Church and the example of such inspiring figures as St. Francis of Assisi and Archbishop Oscar Romero. Over the course of these lectures, you will deepen your relationship with Christ and reinvigorate your participation in Mass and communion. By becoming the Eucharist we celebrate, you will understand what it means to live a truly Christian life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fr. Dan Crosby OFM Cap..

An inspiring, informative, and practical guide to navigating end-of-life issues, by a groundbreaking expert in the field and the New York Times best-selling author of Knocking on Heaven’s Door. In the mid-1400s, an unnamed Catholic monk composed a popular self-help book called Ars Moriendi, or The Art of Dying. Written in Latin, this medieval death manual taught people how to navigate the trials of the deathbed using simple rituals of repentance, reassurance, and letting go. Best-selling author and award-winning journalist Katy Butler argues that we have lost touch with the ´´art of dying” as practiced by our ancestors, yet we still hunger for rites of passage and a sense of the sacred, especially in the important life transitions of aging and dying. Butler has lectured at medical schools and spoken with community and caregiving organizations across the country. Here she reveals what she has learned about dying in America today - and how to have a better end of life. We are coping with a medical system in disarray in its approach to people who are aging, dying, or chronically ill. Butler argues it´s not about living as long as possible, it´s about living as well as possible. Not only does our current system poorly serve our medical needs, it also crowds out any sense of the sacred. It’s time to restore a sense of honor, and through exploring the stages of later life, sharing ´´good death” stories, as well as offering practical takeaways, The Art of Dying Well illuminates a path to a better end of life.
