Today was my 4th and last day at St. Matthew’s parish in Longview, Texas. Below is the final mission talk from this evening. It has been a great blessing to be at this wonderful parish. Hopefully some of the seeds planted will live up to my theme of bearing fruit. Today’s talk is on the Eucharist. The format is similar to yesterday with about half and hour on some history and setting the context of the Eucharist in the Old Testament. After the break, part 2 begins with some Scripture meditation on the Gospel of John, followed by some practical points on various parts of the Mass.
