Welcome to the Year of the Eucharist!

Welcome and greetings in the Lord! The Diocese of Rochester’s Office of Evangelization and Catechesis is thrilled to offer this blog as a means of celebrating and commemorating the Year of the Eucharist, declared by Bishop Salvatore Matano in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary of our Diocese. The Office hopes that these reflections will help us all take advantage of this unique opportunity to renew our Eucharistic love and devotion. The blog posts will provide brief meditations that will unpack and explore the Church’s theology of the Eucharist contained and communicated in Bishop Matano’s Pastoral Letter.

As the author of this blog, I do not intend these reflections to replace a direct reading of the Letter. Bishop Matano’s thoughts are so rich, and they are filled with the authority of a Successor to the Apostles – please read his Letter first, if you have not already! Although I am not speaking directly for the Bishop in what I write, my aim is to provide a commentary that honors, magnifies, and closely reflects all that is contained in Bishop Matano’s Letter. The Eucharistic teaching of the Church, as it comes to us so beautifully and so personally in Bishop Matano’s Letter, is a great gift to each of us – may we savor it continually throughout this Year!
