Hostia: The Power and Presence of the Eucharist
Manhood • 41m
"This powerful and inspiring film begins with the Gospel accounts of how Jesus Christ instituted the Eucharist. It explains how the sacrifices and offerings in the Old Testament prefigured the perfect and final sacrifice in Jesus Christ Himself—the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. The constant belief of Christians in the Real Presence throughout history is clearly demonstrated along with examples of heroic witnesses for the Faith. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is explained as the center of the Christian life where Jesus becomes truly present in the Eucharist. The practices of Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction are presented as the real power behind any evangelization and essential to reviving faith in every Catholic parish.
With contributions from Fr. Nicholas Schofield, Fr. Tim Finigan, Fr. Andrew Pinsent, Hannah Vaughan-Spruce, John Pontifex, Fr. Bruno Witchalls, and Fr. Marcus Holden, this film offers an inspiring presentation with clarity of teaching about the Holy Eucharist."
