Source & summit: The Eucharist issue

Vol. 6 | No. 23 | November 19, 2021

On the cover: At a moment when everyone seems to be talking about the Eucharist — opinion surveys, our bishops, our president, and even the secular press —  it is a good time for Catholics to ask themselves: Is the Eucharist really the “source and summit” of our own lives? On Page 10, liturgy expert and theologian Father Neil Xavier O’Donoghue breaks down some of the biggest challenges and misconceptions about the sacrament. On Page 14, Mike Aquilina looks at the link between the Eucharist and martyrdom in the Church’s history. On Pages 18 and 20, contributors Kathryn Jean Lopez and Elise Italiano Ureneck reflect personally on the sacrament’s meaning.
