“Thank you for allowing me to view “Jesus Thirsts” and to offer my reflections on the film. I found the film very powerful. Its cinematography was beautiful and the music accompaniment was always appropriate and stirring. The method of presenting the Church’s authentic teaching on the Holy Eucharist by rooting the teaching in both the Old and New Testaments and then by reinforcing the Church’s teaching that the Crucified and Risen Body and Blood are really and substantially present under the appearances of bread and wine is catechetically effective. The story about the late Cardinal Van Thuan Nguyen was beautiful. In one and a half hours, the film addresses in a theologically correct and understandable way issues touching upon the nature and effects of the Eucharist from the relationship of Mary to the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist to Eucharistic adoration that is being readily embraced by young Catholic students and adults involved with FOCUS which is present in my Diocese and the relation between faith and science in understanding Eucharistic miracles. Having the Venerable Fulton J. Sheen’s words about the effect of his daily Holy Hour on his preaching and teaching to end the film was brilliant. When I finished viewing the film, I sat back and said, “This film will leave the audience in silence”. How appropriate! Congratulations!”

“The filmJesus ThirstsThe Miracle of the Eucharist, is a captivating and inspiring opportunity to experience the faith of so many, of all walks of life, in appreciating the great gift which is the Eucharist. No matter what walk of life we may be on, this film invites us to deepen our appreciation for the love of God in our lives as He shares it so intimately with us in the Eucharist. The Church exists for the Eucharist in a manner which ignites our hearts to experience Jesus’ thirst for us and our thirst for Jesus. Watching Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist is not watching a movie but entering into the hearts of others who have experienced what the meaning of the Eucharist is all about as the Lord truly shares His heart with us. We are grateful for this film as it enhances our gratitude for the gift of gifts and the sacrament of Sacraments – the Eucharist!”

“This wonderful new film, Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist, will engage, inform, and inspire you and your family with a more profound understanding and love of the Eucharist. I highly encourage the faithful of all ages to see this movie – you will be blessed!”

Bishop David L. Toups

Diocese of Beaumont

“As the Church in the United States celebrates the Eucharistic Revival, goes on Eucharistic pilgrimage together across the country and prepares for the Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis, one of the greatest ways for us to grow in Eucharistic knowledge, faith, amazement, gratitude, love and life is the literally awesome documentary Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist. It will help all Catholics, young and old, hot or cold, well-catechized or just beginning, to meet Jesus’ infinite thirst with our thirst so that we may make him in the daily miracle of the Eucharist the source, summit, root and center of our life.”

“Jesus Thirsts is a compelling cinematic teaching about the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. It offers catechetical teaching which then is reinforced by Eucharistic witness of people and events. After watching, a viewer cannot walk away without believing in the true presence.”
