The Eucharist is the greatest mystery of our Catholic faith. It can’t be understood, only believed. When I struggle most, it’s because I’ve forgotten to pray. I fall away from God and forget what’s really important. Lent is all about keeping the main thing, the main thing. It’s a time to draw near to the Lord.
Who better to draw us near to Jesus than His Mother Mary?
I have a Lenten study idea for you, Catholic homeschool mom. It’s called the School of Mary. It’s simple to do for a busy mother, not too overwhelming. Yet because it’s about Our Lord’s Body and Blood it’s very fulfilling.
School of Mary isn’t my idea.
I don’t claim to be an expert or a theologian. Rather, I am a simple mother who has found in Mary a model for herself and for all Christians. I created this small booklet as a short reflection on Chapter 6 of Ecclesia de Eucharisitia. They should be read together. In this study, I don’t explain the encyclical. Rather, I re-present it as a believer, as a echo of my own faith experience. It would be a wonderful Lenten study because it’s not too long or too short and is perfect for personal reflection time.

It’s my deepest prayer that this mini study will bless all who use it and that God be glorified!
I can say, with no hesitation, that if you read each chapter and spend a few quality moments reflecting on the questions at the end of the chapter, the Eucharist will never be the same for you. ~Fr. Kerry Ninemire, Pastor of St. Francis Xavier Parish of Junction City, KS.
