Optional Memorial

PATRON OF Saint Jean Baptiste Catholic Church (New York City)

Peter Julian Eymard was a French Catholic priest and founder of two religious institutes: the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament for men and the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament for women. Eymard entered the novitiate of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate in June 1829. His first attempt as a seminarian ended because of serious illness. Throughout his life, Eymard suffered from poor health, particularly ‘weakness of the lungs’ and migraine headaches.

Saint Peter Julian Eymard began his priestly life in the Diocese of Grenoble. His faith journey led him to the Marists, and finally to founding the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament. Saint Peter had a deep devotion to Christ in the Eucharist, and his community members alternated between active ministry and contemplation of the Blessed Sacrament. He also co-founded the Congregation of the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament for women.

Fr Nugent draws on scripture and his own personal encounter with Christ through adoration of the Blessed Sacrament to illustrate how Christ transforms us. He taps into the insights of St Peter Julian Eymard to demonstrate the power of Eucharistic adoration as a force for renewal. Fr. David Nugent belongs to the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist, based in the south of France; a small community of priests, deacons and seminarians dedicate to loving and spreading devotion to the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist
