 General Description:

Our Splendid Eucharist - Reflections On Mass And Sacrament
Raymond Moloney, SJ

The traditional devotion of our people to the Mass and the Blessed Sacrament is Linder considerable challenge today from various forces. One of these is a simple lack of understanding of the nature of the Christian Eucharist. That is the problem which this book sets out to tackle.

Our Splendid Eucharist is not a theological treatment of the subject, but a series of reflections, in simple language, on the main lines of our Eucharistic heritage.

It is divided into three sections. The first section accompanies the worshipper through the various parts of the Mass, pointing out something of their history and meaning. The second section takes up familiar points of doctrine and is designed to help the faithful to deepen their understanding of the mystery. The third section reflects on how the Eucharist enters into ordinary life and so makes a difference in our world.

The approach throughout is meditative rather than Speculative, and is designed to bring to bear the best of Christian tradition on the matter, and to enable the ordinary lay man and woman to deepen what in their hearts they already know and believe.

Raymond Moloney SJ is a Professor of Systematic Theology at the Milltown Institute. He is the author of The Eucharist - Problems in Theology (1995) and The Knowledge of Christ (1999), and is a regular contributor to journals including the Irish Theological Quarterly and Milltown Studies.
