This past Monday we introduced this new exciting program called FORMED! As explained, it is Catholic Netflix- a selection of lectures, audio books, movies, and many other resources that can help form your faith. I want to suggest one of the series on this new platform. This series is called Lectio, Unveiling Scripture, and Tradition, Eucharist. Dr. Brant Pitre teaches us about the Eucharist in this series. Here is the course description:
“The Lamb of God,” “The Bread of Life,” “The Body and the Blood of Christ”… these are phrases we know from the Mass. But do we understand what they mean in the greater and deeper context of Scripture and Church teaching? Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre rigorously digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist. He does this through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching. We’ll discover firsthand how Christ’s Body and Blood are an integral and wondrous part of God’s plan for our salvation.
This course will help you grow in your knowledge and faith of Jesus in the Eucharist. Dr. Pitre was my teacher at Notre Dame Seminary. He is one of the most knowledgeable professors of Sacred Scripture in the World. I’m excited we have the opportunity to learn from his knowledge and grow deeper in our faith!
Each session is around 45 minutes and is usually broken into two parts. If you don’t have time to watch it all in one sitting, just remember where you left off and fast forward to that point when you come back. Unlike a class at a school, you may go at your own pace with these courses. If you find it too challenging, or you do not understand it, merely put it aside and move on to something else.
If you have any questions about FORMED in general, please contact the parish office at 225-473-3176
