Overview

This creative prayer compendium invites readers to spend an hour in eucharistic adoration while meditating on the seven last words of Jesus and shows them how to do it. Charles Murphy also profiles seven contemporary Catholics--like Edith Stein and John Paul II--who are inspiring models of eucharistic devotion.

Like many devotions that fell out of favor after the Second Vatican Council, eucharistic adoration has seen swelling popularity in recent years. Msgr. Charles Murphy, author of the acclaimed The Spirituality of Fasting, reintroduces this practice for today. Offering a simple guide for those new to eucharistic devotion, he brings together reflections on the seven last words of Jesus with the profiles of seven modern Christians known for their devotion to the eucharist, including Simone Weil, Edith Stein, Dorothy Day, Blessed John XXIII, Blessed John Paul II, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, and St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.
