Diamonds are beautiful and precious gems. The gift of a diamond says something about the beauty one person sees in another. In Eucharist: Exploring the Diamond of Our Faith, Dennis Billy meditates on the various facets of the Eucharist described in the writings of the New Testament. Jesus left the mysterious gift of the Eucharist to his disciples as a precious diamond because of the hidden beauty he saw in their hearts. In turn they became keenly aware of the intimate connection between the breaking of the bread and the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In an engaging style Fr. Dennis Billy looks with the eyes of faith at the significant passages on the Eucharist in the four gospels, Acts, and the letters of Paul. He guides readers in delving more deeply into the meaning of these passages, to appreciate more fully the tremendous gift of the Eucharist and its meaning for our lives. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter help readers personalize the content of this book. Eucharist: Exploring the Diamond of Our Faith is an excellent resource for individual and group meditation and study, as well as a reference for catechists, teachers, RCIA leaders, and anyone involved in faith formation.
