Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist

Theaters are currently being added – Deep within each human soul, there exists an intense craving for connection, purpose, and love — a thirst that only God can satisfy. Yet, the question remains: How does one fulfill this yearning? The Catholic Church teaches that the Eucharist is the most profound means by which God shares Himself with humanity. However, a 2019 Pew Research Study unveiled a concerning reality: only one-third of practicing U.S. Catholics believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

In Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist, we embark on a global journey to rediscover and revive the transformative power of the Eucharist. Engaging in dialogue with notable Catholic figures, the film explores the biblical origins of the Eucharist and shares personal stories of individuals whose lives have been transformed by the Blessed Sacrament. This exploration makes it unmistakably clear that the Eucharist is not merely a symbol, but is indeed Jesus Christ Himself — fervently desiring to quench our spiritual thirst with His boundless love.

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.”

-Fr. Edward Looney, STL, pastor, author and podcaster

Jesus Thirsts tells amazing stories from people all over the world whose lives have been transformed by the Presence of Christ in the Eucharist…I encourage you to bring people in your lives or friends or your family who maybe do not know if they believe in Jesus in the Eucharist or do not maybe ever think about it.  Maybe they are Catholics who go to mass but never thought that Jesus is truly present – bring them.

Sr. Nancy Usselmann, FSP, Pauline Center for Media Studies, Director

Jesus Thirsts is a way to dive deeper in love with Jesus in the Eucharist and the way that He continues to pursue us so intimately.  I love the idea that you are what you eat and so the more that we get to consume Jesus the more we become like Him.  This movie is such a beautiful way to dive deeper into that mystery of who God is. It’s one of those movies that you could watch over and over again and glean something else from it.
