EASTER, PASSOVER AND THE EUCHARIST

"Do this in memory of me," Jesus tells his disciples at the Last Supper. But as Assistant Professor of Theology Father Thomas Esposito, O.Cist., BA ’05, explains, Jesus is already engaging in an act of ritual remembrance as he celebrates the Passover. In this way, the Eucharist invites us to be drawn into the mystery of memory and history from the vantage point of God.

Father Esposito

EUCHARIST, MEMORY AND NOSTALGIA

In this time following Easter, Assistant Professor of Theology Father Thomas Esposito, O.Cist., BA ’05, joins the Liberal Learning for Life @ UD podcast to discuss the relationship between memory, Passover and the Eucharist. He also speaks about the difference between memory and nostalgia, why so-called “primitives” understood time better than we do, and how time can unite rather than separate people across generations.

Scenes from the Life of Saint Augustine of Hippo

ST. AUGUSTINE AND MEMORY

"Great is the power of memory, an awe-inspiring mystery, my God,” writes St. Augustine in his Confessions. This study guide for the Confessions, taken from the Arts of Liberty Project, explores the entire book, but we suggest looking first at the section on Book 10, in which Augustine meditates on the "power of memory."

This study guide is taken from the Arts of Liberty Project, which educates students, teachers and lifelong learners in the purpose and power of the liberal arts and liberal education.
