Living the Mass the Other Six Days of the Week: The Presentation of the Gifts

Living the Mass the Other Six Days of the Week

We continue to journey through the National Eucharistic Revival and reflect on the parts of the Mass and what each part is calling us to do and be the other six days of the week. Our inspiration is my book, Living the Mass: How One Hour a Week Can Change Your Life, co-authored by Fr. Dominic Grassi. In this episode, we look at the Presentation of the Gifts and reflect on how it helps us to begin the work of sharing our time, talent, and treasure with others and with God.

The Presentation of the Gifts reminds us that any time we are invited to a meal, it is polite to ask, “What can I bring?” To the Eucharistic meal, we offer our time, talent, and treasure in service to others for God’s greater glory. How do you strive to put this into practice the other six days of the week?
