Overview

Because the Eucharist is the Lord's Supper given to his Church for a remembrance of me," it gives life to the world. A Holy and Living Sacrifice, a spiritual theology, explores the rich insights of recent ecumenical, theological, and liturgical studies on the Eucharist.

Contested during the Reformation, the Eucharist as sacrifice - Christ's, the Church's, and ours - is seen today by many faiths as a central and vital symbol. Father Falardeau studies the notion of Eucharist as sacrifice in Scripture and theology and its ecumenical insights and implications for spirituality. He examines the Eucharist as it relates to the forgiveness of sins, eschatology, and the priesthood and in its role as memorial and communion. Father Falardeau directs current Catholic devotion more deeply into the present solid, ecumenical theological consensus among the Churches. He shows other denominations how such devotion concurs with the universal approach and how it can lead to a more fruitful living of the Gospel. By inviting readers to come together and live the Christian life through the Eucharist, this book encourages all Christians to deepen their faith in the Eucharist and their understanding of its nature and power.
