Overview

Despite the frequency in which we attend Mass or the fervor in which we participate, how deeply do we truly understand this Eucharistic celebration?

In an exceptional combination of one of the most ancient forms of Scripture study with the history, theology, and Scriptural perspective of the Eucharist, Stephen Binz leads us on an incredible journey of enlightenment.

Lectio divina, the ancient practice of Scripture immersion, is at the heart of this process. Specifically, every chapter leads you forward through a sequence of:
• Listening—Reading Scripture with expectancy, trusting that God will speak His Word to us through it
• Understanding—Seeking to comprehend the meaning of the text, encountering God there and being changed by that encounter
• Reflecting—Linking the truth of the Scriptures to the experience of faith in the world in which we live
• Praying—A dialogue with God: we listen to God then we respond in prayer
• Acting—After prayerfully listening to God through a passage of Scripture, we should be inspired to make a difference in the way we live
