Here is your key to entering fully into the greatest mystery of the Roman Catholic Church: the transformation of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ. Whether you struggle to see Christ in the Eucharist or simply desire more out of a Holy Hour, this book will show you how to let the Holy Spirit transform your life through the inexhaustible richness of the Blessed Sacrament.

Huge in scope and yet simple and readable, this book covers virtually everything there is to know about the Most Holy Eucharist — and it does so while weaving together the harmonious teachings of the Word of God and the Doctors of the Catholic Church, and even the latest insights from Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI.

The Most Holy Eucharist will clear up the dark clouds of unacceptable doctrine and practice while arming you against the Evil One, who sows seeds of doubt and tries to prevent you from being in union with Christ.

Let this book give you the clarity and strength needed for this spiritual struggle, and you will experience the radiant and unflinching love of our Lord through his Blessed Sacrament.

The wise Opus Dei priest Thomas McGovern explains for you:

  • How the saints of the earliest Church instructed their catechumens to approach the Eucharist.
  • Bread and wine: why they were chosen to embody the memorial of our Redemption.
  • The role Christ calls you to play in the mission of his priesthood.
  • Simple ways you can unite your sufferings with Christ at every Mass.
  • How the Mass is a participation in the one and only sacrifice of Christ on Calvary.
  • The three ways in which Christ presents himself in the Eucharist.
  • How Jesus could offer his Body and Blood at the Last Supper when he had not yet died.
  • The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass: why the graces flowing from it are even more abundant than those offered through Holy Communion.

    Detailed Volume on the Eucharist
    This was a profound book, which deepened both my love and understanding of the Eucharist. It is a book that I hope to visit again in more detail in the future and one that clergy and laity alike should read. If you are looking for a comprehensive reading on the Eucharist, this Fr. McGovern delivers. I only regret that I let it sit on my shelf this long and didn't read it sooner. Don't make the same mistake I did by letting the length of this book intimidate you, pick up a copy and dive in immediately. You won't regret it!

    Holy Eucharist
    Fr.Thomas McGovern's book on the Holy Eucharist is an excellent and refreshing exposition of the Catholic doctrine on this most sublime Sacrament of God's love.It is far from being a mere theological tome .It covers all doctrinal bases from Scripture to the teaching of Popes Blessed John PaulII and BenedictXVI and does so in a devotional and inspiring way.It is meant to-and I believe will-encourage clergy and laity to love the Mass and Eucharistic Adoration with greater fervour,confidence and fidelity.As an illustration of how love of the Eucharist inspires people and strengthens their faith Fr. McGovern devotes his final chapter to a most moving account of this fidelity to the Eucharist by the clergy and laity of Ireland in the face of terrible persecution .This book must be widely read.
