The Eucharist: The Bread of Life
In the Gospel of John, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” This presentation explores how the
Eucharist is the Source and Summit of our lives as Catholics through the actions of Take, Bless,
Break, and Give.

Eucharistic Life: Bread for Others
Pope Benedict XVI said, “when the disciples on the way to Emmaus asked Jesus to stay WITH
them, he responded by giving them a much greater gift: through the Eucharist, he found a way
to stay IN them.” Only when Jesus was present in them did they have the courage to go our and
spread the Gospel. This presentation explores how the Eucharist gives us the grace, strength,
courage, and sustenance through the actions of Take, Bless, Bread, and Give to spread the
Gospel message to all nations.
