As we are at the beginning of the Year of the Eucharist, I will concentrate on Eucharistic information websites.

It's always good to begin with the Catechism of the Catholic Church at ccc_css/archive/catechism/p2s2c1a3. htm#1322.

The encyclical Ecclesiae de Eucharistia (On the Eucharist in Its Relationship to the Church) by Pope John Paul II at ENG0821/_INDEX.HTM contains a wealth of reflection-worthy thoughts for this year.

While at work or at home, you can make a virtual and spiritual communion with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament through your computer. Try our site at html, at or St. Martin of Tours Parish at webcam_main.shtml.

For those who want to get into the theology of the holy Eucharist, see the Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas at newadvent. org/summa/4.htm and scroll down to questions 73 through 83.

EWTN has some links in their online library concerning the Eucharist. Start at faith/teachings/euchmenu.htm.

There are many good books, videos and talks available online concerning the Eucharist. They are available from our online shop at or from other retail outlets found in our business categor y at Also see my online Eucharistic links at html.
