Overview

In this deeply contemplative and meditative study, Father Kereszty first places the Eucharist in the universal context of world religions and shows how the Eucharist is God's response to the universal human quest for the perfect sacrifice of thanksgiving, expiation, and communion. Father Kereszty discusses not only the explicit eucharistic texts of the New Testament but demonstrates the role and meaning of the Eucharist within each Gospel, within the theology of Paul, the letter to the Hebrews, and the book of Revelation. He highlights forgotten texts and recovers surprising insights from the Fathers that show the link between the Eucharist and mystical experience, the presence of all the mysteries of Christ (in particular his death, Resurrection, and his coming in glory) in the eucharistic celebration. He then carries the lex orandilex credendi adage to its logical conclusion: the liturgical celebration provides the content and the organizing principle for the systematic presentation.

In understandable language, Father Kereszty shows us that the real presence of Christ appears as a necessary implication of the self-donation of the God-man, Jesus Christ, and that this real presence points to an ecumenical approach, which, while upholding the Catholic dogma, responds to the Protestant concern to acknowledge the empirical reality of the consecrated bread and wine.

Real understanding of the eucharistic mystery is possible only in the context of prayer and daily living nourished by the Eucharist. Hence, Father Kereszty shows in this book that eucharistic doctrine and spirituality are inseparably connected.
