The Eucharist - Deep in History, Ep. 41
Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson continue their series through "Against Heresies" by St. Irenaeus of Lyons by looking more at Book V of this important Christian work. They talk about how St. Irenaeus discusses the Eucharist as the essential focus of Christian worship, and how Irenaeus asserts that this has been the case from the beginning. Marcus and Msgr. Steenson also look at St. Irenaeus' thoughts on how the Eucharist is our means of spiritual growth and communion with God. Writing in the 2nd century AD, St. Irenaeus shows us that from the beginning, Christians understood that God intended to communicate spiritual truths through physical signs in the sacraments.
