The Amazing Sacrament, A Celebration of the Eucharist
By Stephen Redmond, SJ
Redmond has compiled a fascinating and accessible volume for anyone keen to learn more about the central Act of the Christian tradition. The volume includes a brief history of the Eucharist followed by first-hand Eucharistic experiences from Saint Paul in the first century through to Edith Stein in the twentieth. The personal Eucharistic prayers of believers as diverse as Saint Augustine and John Henry Newman are also included, in addition to prayers from the Irish tradition. The final chapter, a collection of hymn lyrics and music composed by the author himself, is the perfect conclusion to a short but wide-ranging introduction to this most important of sacraments.
