Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

. . . there is a reflective and careful attention to theology and practical information that will be helpful for someone new to this ministry.
Emmanuel

[A] splendid handbook.
New Theology Review

I sensed throughout the pages that I was in good hands.
New Theology Review

With a beautiful mixing of theology and practical information, Father Kwatera brings the reader 'into' the ministry of communion and explains the varying relationships that occur as one distributes the Eucharist. In today's sometimes confusing liturgical environment, the author sweeps away the 'spider webs' and presents in a concise and clear manner the practical theology of the Ministry of Communion. This book is a great read and a useful aid for this ministry. I would suggest that a copy be placed in every parish and be used in the education and preparation of every Eucharistic Minister.
Ronald R. Skjong, DRE/YM, St. Dionysius Catholic Church, New Ulm Diocese, Tyler, MN

What a wonderful way to reaffirm your ministry to the Body of Christ. Michael gives practical and complimentary advice on how to be an extraordinary minister of the Eucharist.
Anita Fischer, Office of Worship, Director, Diocese of Saint Cloud, Minnesota
