As a deeply sacramental people, the Eucharist is often the most central to our everyday lives. Although as children we are educated on its importance as we transition into Christian adulthood we often don’t get a chance to gain a deeper understanding of the mystery of the Eucharist.
This book asks and answers many of the questions that Catholic parents and adults have about the Eucharist.
This book is intended for adults who wish to engage in a critical and informed manner with their faith, who wish to begin to engage in theological reflection as they seen to enter ever more deeply into relationship with God. It is hoped that the book will be faithful to the theological task of faith seeing understanding (fides quarens intellectum), with seeking being a key term, an activity we are all invited to engage in, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
