Who do you say ‘I am’?

On Eucharist and Conformity by Dr. Kimberly Vrudny

Sunday, March 10 at 11:10am – 12:30pm (updated date and time)
Teresa of Calcutta Hall, lower level

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus asks repeatedly, “Who do you say I am?” The question is as relevant today as it was during Jesus’ day. Who is Jesus? The Eucharist is intimately tied to a vision of who Jesus is—because it is into that vision that Christians are being (con)formed when they receive His body and blood. In this presentation, Dr. Kimberly Vrudny will invite participants into a conversation about images of Jesus, and will ground the discussion in the historical research about Jesus’ activity in the region of the Galilee and Jerusalem in the first century. Was He a prophet? A priest? A king? And what are the implications for those of us who wish to follow Him?

The Eucharist as Source and Summit of our Christian Life Series 

 “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.
