071: What You Need to Know about the Eucharist (w/ Dr. Lawrence Feingold)

071: What You Need to Know about the Eucharist (w/ Dr. Lawrence Feingold) August 5, 2020


In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I’m joined by Dr. Lawrence Feingold, one of the Catholic Church’s leading theologians, to unpack what everyone needs to know about the Eucharist.

We cover the Eucharist from the Old Testament, the New Testament, the Early Church Fathers, and discuss what happened to Eucharistic Theology when the Reformation happened.

This is an unbelievably good discussion, with incredible depth, about the most central aspect of Catholic worship: the Eucharist.

Why do Catholics believe what they believe about it? Why is it important? Why does it matter what we believe?

For more from Dr. Feingold check out his incredible book The Eucharist: Mystery of Presence, Sacrifice, and Communion.

Also, be sure to check out the papal documents he recommended:

Ecclesia de Eucharistia, Pope St. John Paul II
Sacramentum Caritatis, Pope Benedict XVI
