The Eucharist: A Mystery of Faith

  • Author: Joseph M. Champlin
  • Publisher: Paulist Press
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 80

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In The Eucharist, popular writer and lecturer Joseph M. Champlin explores the eucharistic mystery from three different perspectives: as sacrifice, sacrament, and presence. In addition, he analyzes another mystery of faith: the Paschal, Passover, or Easter Mystery of Christ’s life, death, resurrection, and return.

Champlin outlines several desirable inner qualities with which we greet the Risen Christ as our guest, and describes ways in which the Eucharist can inspire us to sere others. Each chapter begins with a personal reflection by a eucharistic minister and concludes with a brief related excerpt from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Joseph M. Champlin has been a parish priest in the diocese of Syracuse for nearly 50 years, most recently serving as rector of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral. He lectures on pastoral subjects and is the author of over 50 books, including An Important Office of Immense Love.

  • Publisher: Paulist Press
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 112

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Eucharist and American Culture is a unique resource that considers the impact of American individualism upon the liturgical celebration of the Eucharist. Short, insightful chapters offer key sociological points and liturgical understanding as well as summarize recent academic works and research results of Robert Bellah, Robert Putnam, and Jean Twenge. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal is consulted regarding the celebration of the liturgy.

Suitable for use as an undergraduate religious studies resource, this book will also find a place in courses in religion and culture and sociology of religion, as well as in seminary formation programs and programs for parish liturgical ministers.

Dennis C. Smolarski is a Jesuit priest who has been on the faculty of the department of mathematics and computer science at Santa Clara University in California since 1982.

The Eucharist and Social Justice

  • Author: Margaret Scott
  • Publisher: Paulist Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 160

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Eucharist and Social Justice argues that the Eucharist is deeply political and potentially subversive. It explores the inseparable relationship between Eucharist and social justice. The eucharistic texts embrace a whole host of social issues around poverty and injustice, and this book teases out their wider implications. It also rediscovers the dimension that God intended for the Eucharist: to be the life of the world.

Margaret Scott’s twin passions, for the Eucharist and for justice, illuminate each other beautifully in this splendid book. We are shown how the Eucharist opens our eyes to the sufferings of this world and gives us hope—confident in God’s promises—to challenge the structures of injustice. This is a book born of the vivid personal experience of sharing the lives of some of the poorest people, especially in Latin America. It is also the fruit of study, prayer, and the Eucharist itself.

—Rev. Timothy Radcliffe, OP, director, Las Casas Institute of Blackfriars, Oxford, England

Eucharist: The Meal and the Word

  • Author: Ghislain Lafont
  • Translator: Jeremy Driscoll
  • Publisher: Paulist Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 170

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The sacraments are rooted in the most basic elements of human existence. In Eucharist: The Meal and the Word, an essay of “meditative theology,” Ghislain Lafont reflects on the intimate connection between food and language in the Eucharist. Tracing the progression from the act of eating to the celebration of a festal meal, he then moves to language, because the festal meal often concludes with a discourse addressed to the heroes of the feast. Finally, he examines eucharistic discourse in order to relate the Eucharist to all other festal meals: what it remembers; what is given in it to eat; and what is realized. The Eucharist turns out to be the place of communion with God founded on the memory of Jesus Christ, hoped for in its perfection in eschatological time, and already realized in the symbolic celebration. And yet it also reveals itself as the symbolic fullness of human existence.

Ghislain Lafont is a Benedictine monk from the Abbey of La Pierre qui Vire in France. For over 20 years he was professor of theology at the Pontifical Atheneum Sant’Anselmo in Rome. He is the author of numerous books on systematic theology, including God, Time, and Being and A Theological Journey.

Models of the Eucharist

  • Author: Kevin W. Irwin
  • Publisher: Paulist Press
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 384

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Models of the Eucharist outlines how the Eucharist is integral to and integrative of nothing less than the Christian life itself. Its premise is that the liturgy of the Eucharist—especially the post-Vatican II liturgy—should be a primary source for both eucharistic theology and eucharistic spirituality.

With great clarity and theological depth and a profound awareness of the pastoral needs of the church today, Monsignor Irwin has written a primary ‘model’ that will be a classic for this and future generations of liturgical scholars and practitioners.

—Wilton D. Gregory, archbishop of Atlanta, former president, United States Catholic Conference of Bishops

[Kevin Irwin] invites readers to approach Eucharist as a present enactment of the paschal mystery and a way of life that challenges us to renew in celebration and in life what it means to be a eucharistic church.
