The Eucharist Experience
Eucharist Experience October 2023
The Stations of the Cross are intended to draw those who pray this devotion into an experience of our Lord’s Passion and Death on the Cross. In a similar way, the purpose of the Stations of the Eucharist is to help those who participate to have a deeper experience and greater appreciation of the Mystery of the Eucharist, which is the Source and Summit of the Catholic Faith. The stations display how God through salvation history has prepared the world for the gift of His Beloved Son’s Real Presence in the Most Holy Eucharist. Throughout the Old Testament, the Eucharist was prefigured. And in the New Testament these shadows gave way to reality.
In St. Joseph’s Eucharist Experience, participants will be guided through the Stations of the Eucharist by a narration. This will be done through a fictional story of a holy monk seeking to receive the Holy Eucharist one last time, before the Lord calls him from this earthly life. In his journey, the monk is accompanied by his rich, scientifically minded nephew who does not believe the Eucharist is truly our Lord Jesus’ Flesh and Blood. This young man wants his uncle to get the medical attention he needs. He thinks it is madness for the dying monk to take such a long, arduous journey to find a priest. The uncle insists he needs to eat the Bread of Life and the nephew reluctantly joins him. Along the way, the uncle explains the mystery of the Eucharist to his skeptical nephew who comes to believe in this greatest gift God has given to us, Himself!
While listening to the narration, participants will be immersed in video projection and walk-through full scenes of the Stations of the Eucharist taken from the Sacred Scriptures, showing how God revealed the gift of the Holy Eucharist and why it is so important for our lives.
