Overview

Precious Gifts: Biblical Reflections on the Eucharist by John F. Craghan

Precious Gifts: Biblical Reflections on the Eucharist weds solid biblical scholarship and thoughtful reflections to bring more depth to our experience of the Eucharist.

Hoping to "get more out of Mass" means that we have to invest ourselves in all its elements: from listening to responding, from standing to kneeling, and more. We approach the Eucharist believing that through our participation we are inspired and encouraged for the upcoming week.

Many avenues are open to us to reflect on Sunday Eucharist, and Precious Gifts links "repentance," "revelation," "resurrection" with the Mass. Using these and other lenses (remission, recognition, etc.), John Craghan reaps a harvest of biblical references and makes connections with the Eucharist and our lives.

Precious Gifts is a lovely resource that opens up layers of the Eucharist, layers that remind us of the many ways in which God’s love is put into practice.
