Catholics know that the Eucharist is a special gift. However, it seems that too few Catholics understand the dynamics of the Mass and especially how we can actively participate in the Eucharist in a way that greatly enriches and transforms our lives. This isn't the fault of lay Catholics. So many Catholics have never had the dynamics of the Mass adequately explained to them. In a recent homily, "The Father's House," Deacon Tim gives a short but powerful description of the most important elements of the mystery of the Eucharist. This homily, which is attached, should be very helpful for Catholics who wish to deepen their understanding and experience of the Eucharist.
