By Raymond Cardinal Burke

Raymond Cardinal Burke has given us an important and timely gift in his book, Divine Love Made Flesh. It is sad but true that devotion to the Holy Eucharist has greatly diminished among many contemporary Catholics, and with it an understanding of the importance of the Eucharist has diminished, as well. Thus it is vital that sound Eucharistic theology be taught clearly, fully, and in a way that inspires the awe and gratitude that the Eucharist deserves. In Divine Love Made Flesh Cardinal Burke does exactly that. Using the writings of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI as a guide, he offers us a wonderful vision into the endless mystery of God s love that is made manifest in the Holy Eucharist. In this excellent book the cardinal provides the reader with a clear yet profound understanding of the great sacrament that is the source and summit of our faith. --Father Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR

St Augustine calls the Eucharist the bond of charity. St Thomas calls it the Sacrament of ecclesial unity . Cardinal Ratzinger's ecclesiology is that of a Eucharistic community. Based on these foundations, Popes John Paul and Benedict have enriched the Church with the documents, Ecclesia de Eucharistia and Sacramentum Caritatis. Cardinal Burke s accurate and readable commentary on these two major documents will help Catholics to appreciate ever more the marvelous gift of the Eucharist and the rich teachings of these Popes. --Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney

Drawing from the holy wisdom of our two most recent holy fathers, Blessed John Paul II and Benedict XVI, Cardinal Burke's teaching on the mystery of the Eucharist is clear and deep, profound and practical. Written by a true prince of the Church, especially for Catholic laity, It is ideal for personal study and for prayer/study groups. Spelling out the truth and beauty of the Church's eucharistic doctrine - in the light and logic of divine love - this book will both inform and inspire. Divine Love Made Flesh truly deserves to become a classic. --Dr. Scott Hahn, Fr. Michael Scanlan Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization, Franciscan University of Steubenville
