A good resource for meditations on this sacrament. As with any collection of 52 short meditations, some are better than others, but there are many that really strike a chord for someone pondering what it is we do when we share the communion meal. The collection is assembled to emphasize the global nature of the Eucharist, with meditations inspired by events and stories from around the world.Os.
