Pope John Paul II referred to the Holy Eucharist as "the greatest treasure of the Church," and yet even many devoted Catholics have a very limited understanding of this powerful sacrament. This book will change all that. The reader will come away with a completely new awareness that the Eucharist is not just about receiving Communion; it's about transforming your daily life.
Deeply based on the Scriptures, the writings of the Saints, and the teachings of our two most recent Popes, this profound and remarkably readable book will introduce you to some of the "hidden" truths of the Eucharist — truths that have always been embraced by theologians, saints, and mystics, but have rarely been passed on to the average person in a meaningful way. In The Seven Secrets of the Eucharist, these truths are finally made accessible to all, as author Vinny Flynn shows how each reception of Holy Communion can be a life-changing experience.
No matter how much or how little you already know about the Eucharist, the "secrets" revealed here will bring you to a new, personal "Emmaus" experience, again and again. Perfect for personal devotion, catechesis, study groups, book clubs, and theological studies, The Seven Secrets of the Eucharist will rekindle the "Eucharistic amazement" called for by Pope John Paul II.

this book took my breath away-a must read for all who want a closer relationship with Christ-it brings the Eucharist alive
This book is very educational and inspirational. It gives me more valuable insight about the eucharist than when I was in the RCIA Program. I highly recommend it to all RCIA candidates and to all current catholic practicing the eucharist. You will feel more SPIRITUALLY ALIVE and have BETTER ACKNOWLEDGMENT of the present of Christ during your communion.
Excellent book. My sister gave a copy of this book to everyone in the family and we all really enjoyed it. You will learn a lot from it.
