2023 Franciscan Zoom Lecture – June 15

June 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Franciscan Theology of the Eucharist: Does it inform our lives?

In an age that progressively removed the faithful’s access to the Eucharist, Saint Francis of Assisi conceived an approach to the Eucharist built upon his embrace of the humanity of Christ. Eucharist provided a means for living in this world as Christ lived and so it influenced the evolution of the community and the Order. Today, how does or how might a Franciscan conception of the Eucharist inspire believers to receive Eucharist as a transformational encounter with Christ and the world?
