    "Behold God’s Love: A Eucharistic Musical"
    Saturday, July 6 at 1 and 7 p.m.
    The McGrath Institute for Church Life is proud to sponsor the world premiere of "Behold God’s Love: A Eucharistic Musical." Written in honor of the National Eucharistic Revival and featuring a cast of talented South Bend performers, this three-act musical invites audiences to encounter the beauty of the Eucharist anew through imaginative portrayals of stories from Scripture.
    Act I recalls the Passover, the Exodus, and the miraculous manna in the desert, which has long been interpreted by Christians as a prefigurement of the Eucharistic Bread of Life. Act II highlights different meals from the ministry of Jesus, culminating in the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist. Act III depicts the apostle Paul and the Christians of Corinth as they celebrate the Eucharist together and learn what it means to become the love of Christ in the world. Joyous, light-hearted, and profoundly spiritual, "Behold God’s Love" will inspire viewers to a deeper love of Jesus Christ, truly present in the Eucharist.
