Pope John Paul II once said that the priest is above all, a man of the Eucharist. In the spirit of this statement, Msgr. Stephen Rossetti weaves together reflections on the Eucharist from over twenty notable contributors, including Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop Donald Wuerl, and the late Cardinal Avery Dulles. Moving personal narratives combine with timely and accessible spiritual reflections to make this book a must-read meditation on the importance of the Eucharist in the life of the priest, and that of the Church.
