" What is Communion? Why did Jesus give us this extraordinary gift? How do we receive Communion? The Second Vatican Council described the eucharistic sacrifice as the ""source and summit of all Christian life."" Using the most current translation of the Roman Missal, our bestselling authors explain this great mystery. 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. "
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
