Oswald Cardinal Gracias launches Living in Faith in India

Living in Faith, India’s first and only Catholic family companion magazine for praying and living the Eucharist was launched by Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay on Saturday.

Living in Faith is the Indian version of Living with Christ, the world-renowned monthly Catholic Family Companion for praying and living the Eucharist.

The brand, new periodical is a wonderful daily companion for developing a scripturally-grounded, Eucharist-centered spirituality, ideal for entire family, individuals and parishes.

Unveiling the first edition of Living in Faith, Cardinal Gracias said the publication is a marvelous and essential monthly guide for praying and living the Eucharist. “The Eucharist is the source and summit of our Christian life. The Second Vatican Council’s constitution on the Liturgy has helped us get a deeper insight into the mystery of the sacrament of the Eucharist,” he said.

The Cardinal pointed out that Living in Faith is launched at the right time as this year Liturgy has been taken up as the top priority by the Bombay archdiocese and other dioceses across India.

“In the Eucharist, we receive deep catechetical instruction and spiritual nourishment through the Liturgy of the Word. The Readings are very aptly chosen so that over a three-year circle we are exposed to the major teachings of the Gospel. This contact with God in the word reaches its climax in the reception of Holy Communion when we partake of the Body and Blood of Our Lord,” Cardinal stressed.

Living in Faith, a monthly publication, gives the complete Order of the Mass, including all four Eucharistic Prayers, with the responses of the assembly highlighted in bold print.
