Overview

The Eucharist is a practical reality—Jesus wants to be present in our everyday encounters and experiences. And because we are a Eucharistic people, writes Chris Padgett, "we get to be the transforming presence of Christ to those who will never walk into a church." In down-to-earth and often humorous ways, Padgett helps us find an immediate connection between receiving Jesus in the Eucharist and living a holy life in difficult times. The forty reflections in this book will encourage you and enlarge your vision of the power of Christ through the Eucharist to change your life and those you meet.
