Movie on the Eucharist recommended by Archbishop Naumann

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Jesus is coming to the big screen this June.

Catholics will have the opportunity to rediscover the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist through a new film coming to theaters on June 4, 5 and 6 at two daily showtimes: 4 and 7 p.m.

“Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist” features discussions with Catholic leaders, delves into the biblical origins of the Eucharist and shares personal testimonies of faith. It comes highly recommended by Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, who enjoyed an early screening of the film.

“It is a great follow-up to Corpus Christi and really is a beautiful promotion of the Eucharistic Revival,” said the archbishop.

The June 6 showing will have Spanish subtitles.
