Webinar | Taste and See: Eucharist as Healing (3/21)
While the 'sacraments of healing' are commonly understood to be confession and anointing of the sick, there is a long tradition in the Church of understanding the Eucharist too as a healing sacrament. Drawing on both Medieval Franciscan and contemporary sources, this lecture will explore the Eucharist as a sacrament that heals both sin and its effects. In particular, it will focus on the way in which the Eucharist restores the way in which we perceive God, the world, and each other.
