    not just for Catholics, but all Christians especially those who recognize the efficacy of the sacraments

    As Christians we are called to share the love of God with our neighbors. This book shows how sharing that love in the form of Christ's body and blood with those who are hurting or in need is so impactful on the life of not only the recipient, but also the one who is delivering this amazing grace. Bringing the sacrament to one who would not otherwise be able to receive is a blessing for all sharing in the feast! Thanks for this
