The mystery of the Eucharist is something that has been pondered by the saints, noted theologians, and ordinary Catholics for centuries. Mike Aquilina’s Fire of God’s Love – 120 Reflections on the Eucharist, encourages and inspires the reader to become a part of this mystery.

“Through the Eucharist God changes us as surely as he changed the elements of bread and wine into himself. He forms us as living stones in the temple of his Church. He builds up a eucharistic culture to replace the culture of death.”

In Fire of God’s Love, 80 voices, both ancient and modern, speak to us on the Eucharist. These voices include: St John Vianney, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Richard John Neuhaus, Romano Guardini, G.K. Chesterton, St. Thomas Aquinas, and many, many more.

Take this wonderful little book to take to Adoration. You will find these thought-provoking reflections are much-needed food for the soul. Aquilina states, “God will make limitless poetry out of the prose of your life, and he will renew the face of the earth, beginning with your little corner.”

    Does anybody know where I can get a reliable Catholic book review on the 1998 book by Lee Strobel, entitled “A Case for Christ”?
