John Paul II's Encyclical, Ecclesia de Eucharistia has been a source of many books and articles over the past few years. The title of this book Rekindle Eucharistic Amazement by Kathleen Beckman is taken from the very beginning of the Encyclical and is the theme around which the author, Mrs. Kathleen Beckman, and her to co-authors, Elizabeth Kim Ph.D. and Inga Pak, M.D., have presented their material.
Rekindle Eucharistic Amazement by Kathleen Beckman follows the apostolic teaching and tradition of the Church that has been taught from the beginning, that the Lord is truly present Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in our midst. It is not a purely dogmatic presentation of the Eucharist, but is interwoven with testimony about the authors' personal experiences, on the beauty and power of the Eucharist.
Through judicious choices by the writers, from the Encyclical, Church documents and various authors, mostly Saints, who have written on this subject, it is both very readable and insightful in its presentation about the power of the Eucharist as the "source and summit" of our Catholic Christian life. It is a deeply practical spiritual world that is meant to rekindle within the readers a deeper appreciation of the wonder of this gift given to us in the great act of worship that is the Mass. Rekindle Eucharistic Amazement by Kathleen Beckman makes a strong argument for the relevancy of Adoration or Holy Hour.
