Advent Books: A Eucharistic Christmas

Eucharistic Christmas

 

A Eucharistic Christmas: Advent Meditations on the Presence of Christ is a beautiful book of reflections beginning December 1 and spanning to January 6, focusing on the True Presence of Jesus. Each day brings a thoughtful reflection written by a well-known Catholic author, a crisp and clear thought for reflection or challenge and a beautiful, personal prayer to Jesus, present in the Blessed Sacrament.

Authors include Fr. Andrew Apostoli, Johnnette Benkovic, Mike Aquilina, Fr. Peter John Cameron, Fr. Thomas Acklin, Peter Magee, Fr. John Hampsch, Thomas G. Morrow, David Pearson, Archbishop Charles Chaput and Frank Sheed.

This collection of reflections invites us to pursue Jesus, spending time with Him and entering into a real relationship with Him. Incredible stories are shared including one about an eleven year old girl who inspired Bishop Fulton Sheen to practice the Eucharistic Holy Hour. We can learn from the experiences of others, Scripture and Church Teaching while the reflections prompt us to practice and pursue what we’ve learned…even offering beautifully-personal words to pray and prompt our response.

It’s true that if all of us Catholics truly understood and recognized the True Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, our Churches would be packed all week long. Not only would we rush to Mass and Adoration as often as we could, but we would be overcome with reverence and awe, basking in His Company and seeking Him at every turn. Feeling my own recent nudge to tuck in an extra Mass each week and a little extra, focused prayer time before the Blessed Sacrament, I look forward to reading this book throughout Advent and Christmas…and perhaps, all year long!
