Prayer for Eucharistic Transformation
Recent decades have witnessed a rise in instances of Eucharistic abuse, from violations of liturgical norms to unorthodox practices that encourage irreverence and even habitual sacrilege. The coronavirus situation of 2020 elevated the problem to crisis levels, prompting a wave of sacramental manipulation, desacralization, and deprivation that has left almost no Catholic in the world unharmed.
These disturbing “signs of the times” call for a vigorous and faithful response. To start 2021 off on the right spiritual footing, and inspired by the compelling insights shared in The Holy Bread of Eternal Life: Restoring Eucharistic Reverence in an Age of Impiety by Peter Kwasniewski, Sophia Press is conducting a Eucharistic Reverence and Reparation Novena to atone for the Eucharistic abuses of last year and reintroduce proper respect and awe for the Holy Eucharist.
With Pew surveys showing that a majority of Catholics no longer believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, we are moved to address this situation through a dedicated international prayer effort to make 2021 a year dedicated to restoring Eucharistic Reverence in the Catholic Church.
Sign up here to receive the novena prayers and pledge to make one or more of the following commitments as personal penance for the desacralization of the Eucharist in our country and our world:
