3470 The Medicine of Immortality: An ABC Approach to Eucharistic Meditation
Full title: The Medicine of Immortality: An ABC Approach to Eucharistic Meditation
By Msgr. Joseph Diermeier. A recent Pew Research Center study reported that 69% (more than 2/3!) of US Catholics believe that the bread and wine at Mass remain only symbols of the Body and Blood of Jesus, even after Consecration. This statistic is what has motivated the author to offer these helps to prayer.
The book contains 15 sets of reflections, each of which can be used both to prepare for and to offer thanksgiving after receiving Holy Communion. The author's hope is that whoever reads this book not only thinks about the Real Presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament but also realizes that we can speak to Him, for He is really and truly present.
Enriched with many quotations from Scripture, the saints, and short stories which illustrate each point: A stands for Attention, Affirmation, Astonishment, etc.; B for Body of Christ, Blessed and Broken, and so on; C for Covenant, Christ, etc.
