Bill Snyder and Anne DeSantis of Sewing Hope interview Terry Modica
Questions include: “We know that you came into the Church through a conversion of the Eucharist. So, that has to be so close to your heart, right? That’s just such a profound, beautiful truth that you got to experience and live in a very unique way. And I would love it if you share with our listeners and viewers how that moment came about. And was that part of this study guide [My Soul Shall Be Healed] that you’ve recently put together — because of that relationship that you have with Jesus?”
And: “You said that the Eucharist is a ‘who’ not a ‘what’. And I think that is a big, huge misconception by so many Catholics, and non-Catholics, too. Is there anything else that you want to share on that note? Because that is a pretty big thing: ‘who’, not a ‘what’?”
(The interview begins at about 3 minutes, 15 seconds.)
More about the book, My Soul Shall Be Healed:
My Soul Shall Be Healed explains in ordinary language how to understand the very important Church document Ecclesia de Eucharistia (The Church of the Eucharist), an encyclical by Pope Saint John Paul II. You’ll be able to apply it to your every-day life in today’s world. You’ll discover how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist. You’ll learn why Catholicism teaches that the Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life”. You’ll find out – with clarity — what Catholics believe and do not believe about the Eucharist. And you’ll gain a deep appreciation for the reason why only Catholic priests can consecrate the communion elements alongside the important role you have, with the whole community, in the Eucharistic celebration.
This study guide enables readers and group participants to enter more fully into the mystery of the Eucharist and deepen their intimacy with Christ while enriching their celebration of Holy Mass.
