Description
 
Bread of Heaven offers rich fare-a wonderful blend of Eucharistic prayers, meditations, and poems from saints and writers throughout Carmelite history. Part Carmelite history and part anthology of Eucharistic prayers and meditations, Bread of Heaven is an ideal prayer resource for the growing number of Catholics drawn to Carmelite spirituality and dedicated to Eucharistic devotions. Penny Hickey, O.C.D.S., gathered together choice selections from twenty-four Carmelite saints and writers, introducing each one with a brief biography. Voices from the long, rich Carmelite tradition--from Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross to Edith Stein and Jessica Powers--proclaim their profound love and adoration of the Eucharist.

"Penny Hickey,in pondering the mystery of the Eucharist, turned to the saints of Carmel. Who better than they can teach and inspire us by their thoughts on the Eucharist? Their reflections arose out of their long hours of Eucharistic adoration. Hours of prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament prepare them for Mass. Their deep participation in every Mass increased their longing for prayer, particularly prayer in the presence of Jesus in the sacrament. This was the secret of their tremendous love of God and neighbor."-FROM THE FOREWORD BY KIERAN KAVANAUGH, O.C.D.

"While reading Bread of Heaven, I was struck by the fact that over the centuries, Carmelite adorers have voiced basically the same thoughts about Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar and voiced the same sentiments. One could say therefore that there is a distinctive Carmelite love and devotion for the Eucharistic Lord. But clearly, for their benefit, this should also be shared with all adorers throughout the world"-BURNS K. SEELEY, S.S.J.C., PH.D.-THE REAL PRESENCE ASSOCIATION
