Description

In The Sacrament of the Eucharist, John D. Laurance considers the Eucharist by way of two questions: How, by his first-century life, death, and resurrection, does Jesus Christ save all human beings throughout history from eternal death and make possible their permanent union with God? How is that salvation made available now through the community of the church in her liturgical celebrations? Laurance offers guidelines on how best to read the church's faith in her life of prayer, including as it is typically celebrated in a modern American parish on Sunday morning.
