From the back cover:
Let us ask the question: What is the Eucharist? It is God with us. It is the Lord Jesus veiled under the appearance of bread, but really and physically present in the consecrated Host, so that He dwells in our midst, works within us and for us, and is at our disposal. The Eucharistic Jesus is the true Emmanuel, the "God with us" (Mt. 1:23).
"The Faith of the Church," Pope Pius XII teaches us, "is this: That one and identical is the Word of God and the Son of Mary who suffered on the Cross, who is present in the Eucharist, and who rules in Heaven."
With the Eucharist, God has truly given us everything. St. Augustine exclaimed: "Although God is all-powerful, He is uneable to give more; though supremely wise, He knows not how to give more; though vastly rich, He has not more to give."
