Loyola Institute for Ministry holds webinar on Eucharistic adoration
June 1, 2012
The Loyola Institute for Ministry is hosting the free webinar, “Eucharist and Adoration,” which will focus on how Eucharistic adoration has become an increasingly important part of Catholic spirituality, on Tuesday, June 4 at 8 p.m. The webinar, presented by institute director Tom Ryan, Ph.D., is timed to precede the Feast of Corpus Christi on June 10.
According to Ryan, the webinar will explain the roots of Eucharistic adoration as well as its implications for a life of faith in the world today.
“Numerous Eucharistic practices that we take for granted today, such as reservation of the consecrated hosts in a tabernacle, resulted from the rise of medieval Eucharistic spirituality, to which this feast contributed,” Ryan said. “Participants can watch this seminar online and reflect on the significance of the Eucharist and the tremendous role it plays in our faith.”
Ryan will draw on a number of resources, including the teachings of the Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the Rev. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J., and the catechism of the Catholic Church, to explain the increasing popularity of Eucharistic adoration.
