This is our first class summary in quite a while. We lost several weeks of regular class periods to the Christmas pageant. And I was out of action last week due to some medical issues.

Last night, we picked up our coverage of the sacraments with the Eucharist. Father Kavanaugh stopped in and talked with the class for the first half of the period. He talked about the “real presence” of Christ in the host and cup. He talked about being a mystery. We had some Q&A which is good because it shows some engagement by the students.
We followed up his talk with a discussion of the origin of the sacrament. We discussed the Jewish Passover, now the Last Supper was a Passover seder meal and now the Mass has similarities. We also discussed he concept of a covenant.

We showed a short video that reinforced many of the concepts that we had discussed. It’s a little humorous and he students seemed to enjoy it. You can watch it here.
And, as always, we finished up by asking the students to tell us something they had learned during the class and rewarded them with a cookie.

Next week, we are going to talk about the structure of the Mass and teach the class how to use a missalette.
