Editorial Reviews

[F]resh reading of the tradition that includes a careful exegesis of Scripture, official church documents, the writings of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the writings of a diverse group of theologians. . . . it is highly recommended both for individual and group study.

Regardless of whether a person's formative years were before, during, or after the Second Vatican Council, the content and style of this book invite meaningful reflection on the relationship between the Eucharist and justice.
New Theology Review

If you are concerned at all about the poor around us, this book will stir you to action.

. . . well worth the read for pastoral ministers—in particular, preachers, liturgists, and catechists.
Pastoral Music

. . . a good discussion starter for a faith-sharing community with special interest in Catholic social teaching.

Many authors acknowledge the connection between Eucharist and justice. Pat McCormick goes a big step further by explaining and illustrating the connection. He does so using clever and colorful prose that will delight readers and enrich their spirits.
Kenneth R. Himes, O.F.M., Chair, Department of Theology, Boston College

A profound meditation on the intersection of liturgy and discipleship. We see just how Eucharist leads us to a life for justice - and nourishes us to achieve it. What a joy when scholarship is yoked to realism - and placed at the service of believers. A rich resource for reflection by liturgy teams, preachers, adult education groups, and gatherings of believers meeting for Lenten renewal. This book would make a valuable gift from pastors to the members of their congregations.
Timothy E. O'Connell, Ph.D., Professor of Christian Ethics, Loyola University Chicago

Pat McCormick has written a book that challenges almost as gently and unrelentingly as the Eucharist itself. His creative and faithful presentation of the Catholic tradition of Eucharist as bread, table, body, and sacrifice gives more than a menu. It shows that remembering Jesus means practicing God's justice.
Rev. Jim Dallen, Religious Studies Department, Gonzaga University
