National Eucharistic Revival Series

We are please to present a series of articles by Fr. Luke Spannagel, National Eucharistic Preacher.

Fr. Luke Spannagel is a member of the team of National Eucharistic Preachers which is part of the National
Eucharistic Revival of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The Mission of the Revival is “To renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.”

Having recently served as the pastor of St. Mary and Sacred Heart Churches in Rock Island, Illinois, Fr. Luke currently
assists at St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Heart of Peoria Parishes in downtown Peoria, IL.

As Fr. Luke has shared, “Being with Jesus in the Eucharist is where I feel most at peace and where I feel most
myself. I never wonder if I should be doing something else—I always feel the peaceful conviction that there is
no better place I can be at that moment. Being in His presence helps me see clearly that I am loved and that He
has given everything for me. It is where I am renewed in strength when I falter and where I receive the
strength to do whatever He asks of me each day. My time with Jesus in the Mass and in Adoration is always
the best part of my day.”
