Practical Evangelizing: Listening, to deliver the Good News to those we encounter

Do you want to feel more confident and know exactly what to do to get started in sharing Jesus with family, friends, and acquaintances?

The Genesis Method is a step-by-step break down of the basic components of a fruitful encounter. It can be used by anyone because it is rooted in the act and art of meaningful conversation, which is an essential element of our humanity, but also combined and elevated with the most vital, life-giving of all subjects, Jesus Christ.

THE EUCHARIST AND THE BIBLICAL MANUSCRIPTS

The Eucharist has a central role in the Christian life. As Catholics, we are accustomed to actively experience the Eucharist as it has been handed down to us by the living tradition of the Church. The Biblical manuscripts also bear witness to the importance of the Eucharist in the life of the Church. In this summer Scripture seminar, we will see what the Eucharistic passages of the Bible look like in the pages of ancient, medieval, and even modern manuscripts. Fr.
