Format: Paperback
It is simply impossible to express what we gain from adoring the Eucharist as I know full well. How do we describe an encounter with God? Yet many Catholics have expressed some facet of it over the thousands of years since Christ gave us Himself in that gift.

Mike Aquilina has chosen 120 wonderful quotations that not only help us rise to meet God but that God uses to push aside the veil between us. Some are short and some are long, some are poetic and some are straight to the point, but all are well chosen. One of the surprising things I found what that Aquilina doesn't just include saints and popes, though they are well represented here as one might expect. I was pleased and interested to find reflections from more modern sources such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Maria Montessori, Conrad Hilton, and George Wiegel.

This book could do double service not only as a source for reflection during adoration but as a daily devotional if one wished. It is much more interesting and thought provoking than the usual quote collections. Also, it is beautifully typeset and organized which is something I always notice, especially in a book that is to be used in prayer. I am sorry to say, careful attention to layout is not something we see very often from small publishers. Servant Books is to be congratulated on this.

Highly recommended.

This is a gem of a book. Mike Aquilina has gathered quotes from a variety of different people in a variety of different walks of life. It's so fruitful for prayer-- I love picking one quote and sitting with it. Perfect for Adoration and Holy Hours.

It is also a good resource for showing that the Catholic belief in the Eucharist isn't something the Church just made up a few centuries ago -- it's always been central to the Faith.

Mike Aquilina always gets to the heart of the matter in all of his books. This one continues in that vein. He has compiled an incredible treasure of the thoughts of our spiritual heroes and heroines. As someone responsible for a bulletin board in a Eucharistic chapel, Mike has made my job very easy! And in praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament, this book acts as a starting point for my meditation. Mike's books always get an A+!

What a treasure of a book...I am planning to give it as a confirmation gift to the young lady I am sponsoring for confirmation this spring, 2013. I am confident this book will become a lifelong companion for her life's journey.
