"In The Eucharist, popular writer and lecturer Joseph M. Champlin explores the eucharistic mystery from three different perspectives: first as sacrifice, then as sacrament, and finally as presence. In addition to this, he analyzes another mystery of faith: the Paschal, Passover, or Easter Mystery of Christ's life, death, resurrection, and return." "The book outlines several desirable inner qualities with which we greet the Risen Christ as our guest, and describes ways in which the Eucharist can inspire us to serve others. Each chapter begins with a personal reflection by a eucharistic minister and concludes with a brief related excerpt from the Catechism of the Catholic Church."--BOOK JACKET.Joseph M.
