"Eucharist Matters" is inspired by Fr. Richard John Neuhaus' new book- Catholic Matters: Confusion, Controversary and Splendor of the Truth. Have you read it, yet?
Response from reader:
I have not read it, but plan to get it because I think so highly of Fr. Neuhaus. The Eucharist matters in my life more than I can express in a few words. For two thousand years Catholic Christians have been celebrating the Mass and receiving the Holy Eucharist. This is the strength of the Church and of the Christian who surrenders his or her will to Christ Jesus, our Savior and Lord. The profound love of the Savior to leave us Himself as a gift of love is beyond description. The New Covenant not only promised to exceed the Old, which it superceded, in every way, but it delivered in the grace and love of our Lord, who humbles himself to come to us in this great sacrament. But as in all personal relationships, the benefits are, to some extent, in proportion to our committment to Christ, to the extent of our love, our surrender to His will in our lives. We always get more than we receive but our Lord never forces himself upon us. He wants us to use our free will to choose Him. As for me and my house, we choose the Lord!
