Eucharistic Gems is an aid to the Eucharistic Revival currently under way in the United States. The specific time-frame set aside by the bishops for a period of Eucharistic Revival will come and go, but the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament will always remain in the tabernacles of Catholic churches around the world. What better way, then, to make sure there always remains an on-going fruit of the Eucharistic Revival than to have a book that offers timeless quotes on the Eucharist – 366 quotes, in fact – from popes, saints, blessed, venerables, and servants of God? Eucharistic Gems is intended to be a book that can be read and re-read for years to come, and keep the Eucharistic Revival ever in our hearts.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has initiated a three-year Eucharistic Revival as a way of helping Catholics to rediscover the greatest Sacrament of all the sacraments: the Holy Eucharist. This book is intended to be an aid to this revival, offering timeless quotes on the Eucharist – 366 quotes, in fact – from popes, saints, blessed, venerables, and servants of God. Eucharistic Gems is a book that can be read and re-read for years to come, and keep the Eucharistic Revival ever in our hearts.
Eucharistic Gems is the fourth in a series of books of the same nature. The three previous books are: Marian Gems, Rosary Gems, and St. Joseph Gems.
The Holy Eucharist is our greatest treasure and the source of our hope and strength in the spiritual life. The times we live in are filled with fear, anxiety, and worry. As an antidote, take the time to meditate on these daily quotes, pondering the message given throughout your day. Jesus loves you, and He is always waiting for a visit from you in the Blessed Sacrament. Every Catholic Church has a tabernacle; visit Him!
