WATCH: What’s the Eucharist All About?

Daniel Esparza - published on 06/08/16

Original sin, Christ’s death and Resurrection and the Holy Mass explained in one video

The Sophia Institute for Teachers (a group of Catholic educators who develop inspiring classroom-ready materials to engage students more effectively) have done it again: in this video, part of their SophiaSketchPad.org series, they explain, with both simplicity and theological depth, the connection between original sin, Christ’s death and Resurrection and the Holy Mass, all of it to explain the Eucharist. Abounding in biblical quotes, salvation history and the theology of the Sacraments, this video will give you a thorough understanding of what the Eucharist means for us as Catholics!
