Welcome to the first in a series of articles on the Eucharistic Revival in the Diocese of Colorado Springs! Once a month, we will cover important topics about the Eucharist, what that gift means for us as Catholics, and how we live that faith. There will be quotes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and other recommended reading to help you go deeper into the subject. This page will be complemented every other issue with some thoughts on reclaiming Sunday as the Lord’s Day. We hope these sections will be helpful in your own faith, knowledge, and love of our Lord’s True Presence in the Eucharist!
