Christ’s greatest gift to us is the Eucharist, the “Sacrament of Sacraments.” It is the central event in the Orthodox Church and the highest form of our worship. Through the themes of remembrance, thanksgiving, forgiveness, and community, Of Your Mystical Supper explores the mystery of the Eucharist.
The first in a series of zines for high school students, the text introduces the fullness of the Church’s teachings with Scripture and excerpts from the Fathers, such as St. Nicholas Cabasilas and St. Justin Martyr. Of Your Mystical Supper helps readers develop a more mature understanding through engagement with the tough questions—including ”Why is the Eucharist closed?” and “Why do we insist that bread and wine become body and blood?” The zine also describes liturgical practices and traditions, such as the making of prosphoro.
Suitable for ages 13 and up - for use in the classroom, during retreats or at home.
