The Pope touched on a few subjects throughout the book being the Eucharist the main theme. According to the author, and he should know, the Eucharist has two dimensions, namely, adoration and communion. Through the Eucharist we meet Jesus again and again in an intimate and sublime way.
God loved us first and He became flesh and blood at a given point in history with the purpose of redeeming us all. This book does touch on what was stated in the previous sentence and much more. Enjoy it.
Great book to read if your wanting a deeper understanding of the Eucharist and some of the deeper beliefs of the catholic faith.
He is often direct or often obscure, depending upon the time and place of the writing. Individual chapters were written as homilies, articles, teachings and the like. Overall I enjoyed it, though it lacked continuity.
But I'll tell you, if you can get a hold of a copy, read the chapter: "The Presence of the Lord in the Sacrament." I've never heard it put so beautifully. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for giving us this wonderful scholar and pastor as our Pope. Amen.
