The Body and Blood of Christ: The Mass Readings Explained Excerpt

by Brant Pitre June 13, 2017 0 Comments



In this video taken from the series, The Mass Readings Explained, Dr. Brant Pitre emphasizes the realism of Jesus' words in John 6 of his flesh being true food and his blood being true drink. With the background of the Manna in the desert to clarify his meaning, Jesus says that just as his fellow Jews' ancestors had to eat the manna in the desert in during the exodus to reach the earthly promised land (though they would eventually die), to reach the heavenly promised land and never die, we, too, must eat the heavenly manna, which is his flesh.

Genesis

I am listening to this while driving and sometimes deliberately take the slow lane which will keep me longer in the car. I just can’t get enough. Many thanks for making the lectures publicly available

Jesus the Bridegroom

Excellent. Great overview for the book we are using for our bible study.

Enlightening!

Great talk on adoration, and our need to spend time with our Lord.

Essential preparation for Easter

I am so glad that Dr. Petri came out with these videos of his presentations. I have read a lot of his books and use them in my Catechism Class. Please don't miss this opportunity to feast on what has taken him years to accumulate. It would be such a waste of a soul.
If your not fond of reading, definitely get his videos for yourself, your family, or for bringing back uneducated Catholics who may have left the faith. Our faith is so rich it is like a finely woven Persian carpet that takes years to make before you see the pattern...Dr. Petri has done all the weaving for you, you just get to step back and admire the work and then revel in what he reveals to you.
We are using this video in a presentation for our Parish the week before Easter...thank you Dr. Pitre!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!

As I've come to expect from Dr. Pitre!! He can take a profound mystery, which is central to our faith, and take us through a step by step process, to help us understand and appreciate this on a whole new level!! I recommend this to every Catholic!!
