Food for the Journey: A Retreat Guide on the Sacrament of the Eucharist

Not sure how to use this retreat guide?

God’s plan for the human family was disrupted by eating. When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, they betrayed their friendship with God, losing the only source of lasting happiness, and put the whole world under the influence of evil.

Eating the forbidden fruit also introduced death into the human family, because original sin also cut us off from God’s gift of the Tree of Life. So there you have it: God’s plan for us was messed up by eating. But God drew up a plan to restore that lost friendship and renew the lost promise of eternal life. And, in a wonderful stroke of divine wisdom, this plan of restoration also involves eating.

In this Retreat Guide, Food for the Journey, we will reflect on this amazing gift.

  • The two meditations will highlight some of its wonders and refresh our appreciation for it.
  • And the conference will offer some practical advice for getting more out of Mass, the quintessential celebration of the Eucharist.

  1. Thank you for these inspiring videos for which we are extremely grateful. We use them also for group discussion. However is there a way of copying and printing the questions and quotations which would help in reflecting.
    Thank you

    1. Dear Mary, We are so glad that these Retreat Guides are helpful for your group. Just above the first video, you will see an option for video, audio, and print. If you select the print option, you will see a choice for “group”. Select that and it will give you a pdf of all the questions and quotations for this Retreat Guide. Blessings!

  2. I have two friends in Illinois and I live in Colorado and we have taken to watch a meditation each week and then conference call to discus the questions in the evenings of Mondays. It has helped me to dive deeper into the meaning of the Eucharist. Thank you so much for offering these.
