"This third volume of the 'Catholic for a Reason' series will provide for the reader much food for prayerful reflection, much of which will, I hope, take place before the tabernacle. The content of this volume will surely nourish the "WOW," which should abide in the heart of every disciple of Christ, so that our amazement in the face of the Eucharistic mystery, as well as our human capacity for wonder, might be stirred." -- Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of Madison, WI
"An excellent text for study groups or for personal formation in the theology and spirituality of the Eucharist. Each chapter is engaging and easy to read, yet solidly and comprehensively presents the Mass and the Eucharist, showing their scriptural foundation from Jewish roots through apostolic times, and unfolding their meaning for christian living in the present, on to the future parousia. The meaning of the Eucharist is explored regarding Real Presence, sacrifice, evangelization, suffering, and marital communion. This is a book one can read for inspiration, yet return to frequently to review and study, finding applications for one's daily life as well as insight for better participation in the Mass and in Eucharistic devotion." -- Fr. Thomas Acklin, O.S.B., Saint Vincent Seminary, Latrobe, PA
