Overview

Cardinal Schonborn, who regularly gathers the people of his diocese in the beautiful medieval cathedral of Vienna, Austria, knows how to communicate the great Christian mysteries in modern ways. He has the gift to integrate contemporary everyday experience with the knowledge passed on from tradition and the great thinkers and theologians of the church.

In this volume, focusing on the beauty and power of the Holy Eucharist, the renown Cardinal and prolific author also explores how these rituals often connect to the Jewish roots of the Christian story. Accessible to all those who want to know more about the essential source of Christian spirituality in order to elevate the depth of their experience in it, this work defines the origins of the Eucharist in the Passover celebration and the Last Supper, along with other key elements of the liturgy, including sacrifice, transubstantiation, the transformation of the bread and wine, and the significance of the Eucharist today.

A readable, beautifully insightful book for everyone who desires to understand and experience more profoundly the central sacrament of Christian life.
