In The Holy Eucharist: Our All, Fr. Lukas Etlin gives it all away in the title: the Holy Eucharist is our everything, because it is God Himself. It is the source and the summit of Christianity, the point of origin and the final destination of each of us. The Christian faithful have always given great honor to Our Lord truly present Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in the Most Blessed Sacrament. But in this age of lawless contempt of what is sacred and spiteful indifference to (or even unbelief of) Our Lord's presence under the appearance of bread and wine, it behooves us ever more urgently to worship Him in the majestic humility of this Sacrament of Sacraments.
Fr. Etlin guides us through a meditation on the Blessed Sacrament as:
- our life
- our food
- our expiation
- our salvation
- our treasury of grace
- and, most of all, the best proof of the Divine Love for us.
This short book will evince from you an ever more humble, earnest, and gentle devotion to Christ in the Sacrament of His Body, present for all on every altar and in every tabernacle throughout the world. All the more fitting is the book's brevity, since upon reading, you will long to rush to God's dwelling place and lay your head against His breast.
Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore! Oh, make us love Thee more and more!
