The Hungers of a Wealthy People: The Eucharistic Bread of Life

The Celebration of the Eucharist seeks to satisfy the hungers of the human heart in ways that no mere food can ever achieve. When we come to Mass, we discover just how hungry we are for the things that so often go unnoticed in our daily lives – spiritual yearnings that are far too important to be neglected or ignored.

Archbishop Wilton Gregory has served in many leading roles in the U.S. church. In November 2001, he was elected president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops following three years as vice president. He currently serves as the chair of the USCCB Committee on Divine Worship. Archbishop Gregory has written extensively on church issues, including pastoral statements on the death penalty, euthanasia/physician-assisted suicide and has published numerous articles on the subject of liturgy, particularly in the African-American community.
