Eucharistic Theology: Learning with the Immigrant Communities

by Dr. Hansol Goo from College of Saint Benedict and St. John’s University

Responding to the alarming rate at which the majority of American Catholics are becoming disconnected from the life of the faith, the US conference of bishops is focusing their pastoral efforts on revitalizing the piety centered on the Eucharist. How can we deepen our relationship with the Lord who comes to us in the Eucharist? One particular characteristic of the Catholic Church in America is its deep foundations rooted in the history of immigration. Since the late 19th century till today, immigrants and their experience of immigration continue to provide a strong foundation for the Church’s life of faith. What theological insights about the Eucharist can we gain from the experience of immigration in our own times?

“The Eucharist is God’s response to the deepest hunger of the human heart, the hunger for authentic life, for, in the Eucharist, Christ Himself is truly in our midst, to nourish, console and sustain us on our journey.” Pope Francis

On June 19, 2022, the Catholic Church in the United States embarked on a three-year journey to encourage a deeper understanding of the mystery of the Eucharist. We just finished the Year of Diocesan Eucharistic Revival which saw many initiatives in the different dioceses throughout the country. Currently we are in the Year of Parish Revival which will culminate with a Eucharistic Congress to be held in Indianapolis from July 17-24. Next, we will engage in a Year of Going out on Mission through Pentecost 2025.
