Pope St. John Paul II wrote, "By giving the Eucharist the prominence it deserves, and by being careful not to diminish any of its dimensions or demands, we show that we are truly conscious of the greatness of this gift. ... There can be no danger of excess in our care for this mystery, for "in this sacrament is recapitulated the whole mystery of our salvation" (Ecclesia de Eucharistia, no. 61).  

If you feel alone in your desire for reverence before the Lord, be not afraid! Popes, saints, and Church Fathers will back you up when you read Bishop Athanasius Schneider's Dominus Est - It Is the Lord!

From the back cover: Holy Communion is not simply a convivial moment of spiritual nourishment; it is the most personal encounter possible in this life between the faithful Christian and his Lord and God. The best interior attitude for this encounter is one of receptivity, humility, and spiritual childhood. Such an attitude, by its very nature, is expressed through gestures of adoration and reverence. We have eloquent witnesses to this truth from the tradition of the Church, summarized by the sayings cum amore ac timore (with love and fear) from the first millenium and quantum potes, tantum aude (dare to do as much as you can) from the second. To illustrate how this attitude manifests itself, the author shares stories of three "Eucharistic women" known to him from the Soviet Underground. This book encourages Catholics of the third millenium to treat the Lord, in the august moment of Holy Communion, in a manner appropriate to the Church's tradition.

I have read the whole book with delight. It is excellent.

    Eye Opening

    Posted by Dana Longoria on 26th Jun 2014

    This book opened my eyes to how blessed we are to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. Hearing what these people went through back in the Soviet Underground to be able to have something that is available to us every day was unbelievable. How much more this makes me approach the Eucharist with excitement, joy and awe.

    This very short book is a must read!! I am so glad to have come across it. It clearly explains the importance of the Eucharist and what we need to do to love and adore our Lord. I was able to read it in a couple of hours and look forward to perusing it every so often.
