Why another document on the Eucharist?

Pope John Paul II gave us the Encyclical on the Eucharist, Ecclesia de Eucharistia and many apostolic letters and the many writings of saints and doctors of the Church explain the meaning of the Eucharist for our Catholic spirituality. Why is another document necessary?

The attached article gives the following quote from the Holy Father:
The Holy Father continued: "At a time characterized by the growing phenomenon of globalization, it is increasingly necessary to have the truth of Christ and of his Gospel of salvation reach all with vigor and clarity."
