Bishop Robert Barron offers inspiring insights into the mystery of Christ's presence in our lives. So many believers do not understand the mystery of the Eucharist, which Vatican II said is the “source and summit of the Christian life.” This fresh look at the Eucharist brings to light its reality as sacred meal, the sacrifice necessary for communion with God and the real presence of Christ.

   "Truly a spirituality for the 21st century!"
     --Dolores Leckey, Woodstock theological Center

   "What a fantastic job you did.  I know that the book itself was written for a universal audience, but please know that my own audience is only women and the insights I grasped via your book were all along the lines of how we might live those beautiful truths."
   --Genevieve Kineke, Catholic Exchange
