"Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist"

Many thanks to Dan Grossano who sent me a message on the feast of Corpus Christi about a book and presentation, "Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist" by Dr. Brant Pitre.  As Dan recommended this to me, I recommend it to you (kinda what we heard from St. Paul in the second reading on Sunday..."I handed on what I received"!).  As Dan said, "I was just listening to his presentation about it and it is dynamite. It would be well worth your time and can be found here: http://www.theholyeucharist.com/".

When you click on the link above, you can listen to or watch the presentation by clicking on the audio file or video file (under the download section as it appears below).  Understanding the Jewish roots of the Eucharist truly helps us to appreciate the richness and depth of the greatest treasure on earth.
