Eucharist and Mission: Reflections and Prayer Resources
Each week as we celebrate around the table of the Lord, we have an opportunity to return again to the love of Christ and to be transformed. As we are transformed, we are sent on a mission together to live as the Body of Christ in the world. The Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development has cultivated a sampling of resources to help individuals and communities become missionary disciples who are fed, healed, and sent by the Eucharist.
