In strong, clear voices the saints left us these prayerful meditations, sure protection against sudden temptations, and lucid answers to sharp questions about the Faith. In a word, this one rich volume will serve you as a deep catechism, a spur to conscience, and a call to prayer.

The Basic Book of the Eucharist
In The Basic Book of the Eucharist, Fr. Lawrence Lovasik, author of the beloved bestseller The Hidden Power of Kindness, says that in the Eucharist Catholics can find “the unsearchable riches of Christ.” In this book, he shows how.
Fr. Lovasik emphasizes Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist, helping you recognize His presence there. With deep and warm faith, he shows you how you can receive everything that God offers you in the Mass — including quite a few important spiritual graces that you probably aren’t aware of. He tells you how Holy Communion can bring you to real union with God, give you joy and consolation, and even bring peace and happiness to your family.
Fr. Lovasik even explains how you can overcome some of the misperceptions that are common among Catholics about frequent Communion and reveals why you should seek the help of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament amid your day-to-day pressures and troubles.
So if you’re looking for increased protection from sin, a greater ability to love God and others, and an unfailing source of peace, let Fr. Lovasik show you the way to find all this and more in the Holy Eucharist. Based firmly on Scripture and Church teachings, The Basic Book of the Eucharist will help you receive Communion more worthily and find in it a preparation for Heaven — as well as a foretaste of its delights.
