Segment 4 – Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist
“An unlikely group of Catholic filmmakers have come together to create a watershed movie that they hope will inspire a movement of faith that returns people to the pews for Mass and deep devotion to the Eucharist. Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist hits U.S. theaters June 4, 5 and 6 and is executive produced by Deacon Steve Greco, Eduardo Verástegui (Sound of Freedom, Cabrini, Bella) and produced by James Wahlberg (Mother Teresa: No Greater Love) and Tim Moriarty (Mother Teresa: No Greater Love).  The film is a cinematic catechesis that explores the Biblical roots of the Mass, scientific aspects of Eucharistic miracles and includes watershed testimonies from men and women transformed by the power of God.”

Steve Greco is a permanent deacon and Director of Evangelization and Formation for the Diocese of Orange, California. He serves at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Irvine and is the founder of Spirit Filled Hearts Ministry (, which engages in evangelization and the promotion of spirituality, and supports Catholic missionary efforts in the Philippines and Indonesia.  He is co-executive producer of “Jesus Thirsts.”
