- We unite in prayer each day at 3 pm. The 3 o’clock Our Father has been our rallying point for years, but even more so with our renewed effort this Lent.
- We can share stories of ways that we are loving one another by sending “Be nice” moments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We join together by watching MattTV for Lenten reflections and more recently for Sunday and daily Mass.
All 7 Episodes and a study guide can be found on Formed.org.
Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life. The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.
Rachel Willoughby will send a link each week on Bringing Church Home from Flocknote with a link to the video, and a short written reflection and a few key questions for discussion. Contact RachelW@stmatthewcatholic.org for more instructions with this study.
Great study to use with your small group.
