Drawing on the trusted and popular Catholic Update newsletter, the Catholic Update Guide to Communion will help you understand the history and meaning of Communion. Whether you are new to the Church, guiding your child through First Communion, or returning to the sacraments, this book will help you grow stronger in your faith.
As series editor, Mary Carol Kendzia has combed the bestselling issues of Catholic Update to bring you the words of William Shannon, Richard Rohr, John Feister, Carol Luebering, and other popular authors on this topic.
For those of us who are well-versed in Church Teaching, many of the points in Catholic Update Guide to Communion are going to be a review of what we all ready knowand that's a good thing. It is good to go back and remind ourselves of the richness of our faith and the Sacraments, especially the gift of the Eucharist.
For those of us who are not well-versed in Church Teaching, the Catholic Update to Communion is the perfect "handbook" for being introduced to the profound gift of the Sacrament or the perfect supplement to a course of study on the Eucharist. As a matter of fact, I am planning on using this book as a supplement for helping my son prepare for his First Communion coming in April (2013).
Sprinkled throughout the book are reflection questions that help the reader dig deeper into their understanding and love of the Eucharistic. And I love the practical aspect of the book in the way the authors lay out how to receive Communion. They even explain, in a clear and direct way, why Catholics can not share Communion with other non-Catholic Christians. --Simple Catholic Living
