Segment 4 – “How the Eucharist Can Save Civilization”
“The greatest civilizations have all sought immortality. From inventions to massive monuments, these societies have tried to produce something that would define them and last forever. But only one is eternal: God Himself. Christ’s greatest gift, His divine flesh and blood in the Eucharist, is the eternal defining legacy of Christendom, the flower of Western Civilization. The Eucharist is not just a doctrine; it is a reality to be lived, and it must shape our entire lives and culture. Indeed, from hospitals to the great cathedrals, this gift defined Western Civilization and allowed it to reach its highest heights.” Dr. Staudt joins us.  (Originally aired March 21, 2023)
