25 Apr 2019

Sketch of Fulton Sheen by Beth Larkin

Meditate upon the profound words of Venerable Fulton Sheen, best known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. In this episode, we reflect upon his words on the Holy Eucharist. Quiet your heart and begin this video in a state of prayer. Afterwards, reflect upon the words by answering the questions below.

This reflective video can be used as an introduction to prayer within a youth group or classroom setting.


  1. Do I have a hard time accepting the teaching of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, as the disciples did when Jesus announced it It in the Gospel (John 6:53-66)?
  2. God gave us His very self in the Holy Eucharist and It “sustains our strength along the pilgrimage of this life.” How can I be more receptive of God’s giving of Himself?
