A contribution to the Eucharistic Revival in the Roman Catholic Church in the United States as called for by the USCCB.
We are pleased to have the endorsement and support of Bishop Andrew Cozzens, the Chairman of USCCB Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis and leader of the National Eucharistic Revival, with whom we will be partnering during these years of Revival.
Array of Hope offers, in collaboration with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, a 3 night encounter with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
The nights include talks, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass or Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and music provided by Array of Hope.
“The “BEHOLD” nights look to be very bright lights which the Lord will use to pour out streams of grace to those who attend.. [and] tie in very well with the Bishops’ recent document on the “Holy Eucharist: The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church.”– Bishop Andrew Cozzens
This evening focuses on how Jesus’ saving mission is a mission of healing, and how the Lord calls us to come to Him in the Eucharist to receive the life and healing He wishes to give us.
When God reveals Himself to Moses in the burning bush, Moses removed his sandals and covers his face. And God makes known His name: “I Am Who Am” (Ex. 3:14).
Jesus makes plain that He Himself is this very “I Am” (e.g., John 8:24) and throughout the Gospels the common response to Jesus is awe and fear (e.g., Mark 10:32). Are we mindful of the fact that in the Eucharist it is the eternal and almighty God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, that we encounter? This evening focuses on how when we come before Christ in the Eucharist we indeed are on
holy ground in the Real Presence of “I Am Who Am” and should be struck speechless with awe and fear.
Jesus wants us to be one with Him and to abide with Him (e.g., John 15:4-9). His messianic mission is described as a Bridegroom marrying His Bride and the Kingdom of God as a wedding feast (e.g., Mark 2:19, Ephesians 5:25-27, 32, Rev. 19:6-9). Jesus tells us that those who eat His flesh and drink His blood abide in Him and He in them (John 6:56). Do we appreciate the incredible invitation we are receiving when Jesus bids us to come to Him, and do we approach in a worthy manner (1 Corinth. 11:27)? This evening focuses on how in receiving Holy Communion we are called to become one with Jesus in an intimate union.
