"Look with favor on your Church’s offering, and see the Victim whose death has reconciled us to yourself. Grant that we, who are nourished by His Body and Blood, may be filled with his Holy Spirit, and become one body, one spirit in Christ" (Roman Missal).
With these familiar words we enter into the greatest of all celebrations of Faith. Now Cardinal Francis Arinze, one of the great leaders of the Church in the twenty-first century, brings readers to new levels of understanding and greater heights of appreciation for Christ’s inestimable gift of his body and blood in The Holy Eucharist.
Each of these short gems of contemplation has been designed to create a deep and lasting hunger in your heart for a more perfect union with the Lord. From his penetrating historical insights to his compassionate pastoral advice, Cardinal Arinze’s meditations help all Catholics find in the Eucharist a dynamic source for answering the demands of their vocation and mission in the Church and in the world.
