The traditional devotion of our people to the Mass and the Blessed Sacrament is under considerable challenge today from various forces. One of these is a simple lack of understanding of the nature of the Christian Eucharist. That is the problem this hook sets out to tackle. Our Splendid Eucharist is not a theological treatment of the subject, but a series of reflections, in simple language. on the main lines of our Eucharistic heritage. it is divided into three sections. The first section accompanies the worshipper through the various parts of the Mass, pointing out something of their history and meaning. The second section takes up familiar points of doctrine and is designed to help the faithful to deepen their understanding of the mystery. The third section reflects on bow the Eucharist enters into ordinary life and so makes a difference in our world. The approach throughout is meditative rather than speculative and is designed to bring to hear the best of Christian tradition on the matter and to enable the ordinary people to deepen what in their heart they already know and believe.
