Week Six of our book study on, Our One Great Act of Fidelity discusses the spiritual acts of Eucharist and how we are called to receive and share this gift.
How does Eucharist shape the way we live out our lives each and every day? Do we acknowledge that all we have is indeed a gift from God? How does our understanding of Eucharist shape the way we experience and interact with others in our lives?
This Lent, as we anticipate Easter and the ending of our pandemic, how does this time of waiting help us embrace a deeper commitment to receive God’s love joyfully and to share this joy with others?
WEEK 6 LENT REFLECTION GUIDE

- Watch Part Six of Fr. Jim’s video, which is 5 ½ minutes long
- Prayerfully reflect on the following questions:
- Think of a time you waited to receive something. Were you able to wait patiently and peacefully – to trust that you would receive what you needed or did you struggle to wait before you could receive?
- How does sacrificial giving resonate with the spirituality of Eucharist described in this book?
- Do you believe that gratitude is the ultimate virtue for being a saint (page 104)? Why or why not?
- How do you find God in the experiences of sharing daily life with others?
