In the Gospels, Jesus literally ate with “saints and sinners” alike; and many walked away transformed, healed of their sins, and eager to share their story with others. Each time we come to Mass, we, too, dine with Jesus, but do we walk away any different? This presentation by Dr. Mary Amore of Mayslake Ministries will explore the ways that our experience of Jesus in the Eucharist can be a pathway to spiritual transformation, healing and a renewed call to discipleship.

Dr. Amore is the author of Primary Symbols of Worship and the Call to Participation, as well as the creator of the DVD Series: Eucharist: Pathway of Transformation, Healing and Discipleship published by Pauline Media.
