Reflecting on the Eucharist, our Spirituality and the Mass

This fall, Sister Joyce Ann Zimmerman gave two presentations in the Salem Heights Chapel, at our central house in Dayton, on the Eucharist and Precious Blood Spirituality.

On Sept. 6, in “Eucharist as Self-giving,” Sister Joyce Ann explored “the times during Mass and in our lives when we are invited to give ourselves over to the God whom we love and the people whom we serve.”

On Sept. 20, in “Precious Blood Spirituality as Self-giving,” she explored “the intimate connection of the Eucharist and our Precious Blood Spirituality as our unique call to self-giving.” Both presentations can be viewed on our YouTube page at @sistersofthepreciousblood8081.

In October, as part of the Fall Learning Series at the Maria Stein Shrine of the Holy Relics, Sister Joyce Ann gave presentations on the introductory and concluding rites of Mass. Those presentations can also be viewed on YouTube, at @mariasteinshrineoftheholyr2410.

Sister Joyce Ann is the founding director of the Institute for Liturgical Ministry in Dayton, an adjunct professor of liturgy, and a frequent facilitator of programs and workshops on liturgy. She has published numerous scholarly and pastoral liturgical books and articles.

Her most recent book, Waiting on the Beloved: The Eucharist as Self-Giving Love, was published by Liturgy Training Publications in January.
