whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world

whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world

-John 6:51

“Yes, the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith, but it’s also the source and summit of our mission. The Eucharist puts us on mission to take what we’ve received the very life of God and how He wants to take over us so that He can use us as instruments to bring His love to the world.”

Archbishop Joseph Naumann

Getting Started

Archbishop Naumann and the bishops of the United States believe that God wants to see a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and sent out in mission “for the life of the world.”

They are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. The 3 areas of concentration are: Clergy & Liturgical Ministers: Encourage Eucharistic Zeal; Lay Faithful: Provide Eucharistic Formation; and Offer Transformative Eucharistic Experiences.

At the center of this revival are these core truths:
  • Jesus loves each one of us.
  • Jesus gives Himself completely to us everyday, inviting us to participate in His Eucharistic Miracle.
  • Father, Son and Holy Spirit deeply desire to connect with you–moment by moment–to share in your journey of life.
  • Every Mass includes a prayer highlighting God’s desire to gather to Himself all of His scattered children throughout the world.
  • Jesus presents Himself as broken bread in the Eucharist. Only God’s love and mercy can heal the brokenness in our lives.
  • God’s love can never be lost or undone, regardless of our actions. God patiently waits for us to invite Him to share in the joys and sorrows of our lives.

Connect With The National Movement

Finally, the three years will culminate in the first National Eucharistic Congress in the United States in almost fifty years. We expect a hundred thousand Catholics will join together in Indianapolis for a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage toward the “source and summit” of our Catholic faith.

Archbishop Naumann’s Reflections on the Eucharistic

Listen, study, and share John 6 with Archbishop Naumann.

We are called to go and share the Good News of Jesus with others. We invite you to share your story. Using your phone, shoot a 45 sec-1 min video of yourself sharing how the Eucharist feeds you in your life. These videos can be done while you’re cooking, cleaning, hanging out with family or friends, walking with your dog, anywhere. We have shared a couple of those videos here. Please email your video to enflame@archkck.org. We will share these videos with others around the Archdiocese to help foster a deeper love for the Eucharist.
