    October 24-25, 2019: It has been at least three years since I read this; eleven years since my review. A recent Pew Research Survey revealed only one-third of Catholics believe the Holy Eucharist is the actual Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. It seemed a good time to brush up on my own understanding of this central tenant of our Faith. One can never know too much about this beautiful mystery. Donating a copy to our Adoration Chapel; the best place to read it.

It seemed a good time to brush up on my own understanding of this central tenant of our Faith. One can never know too much about this beautiful mystery. Donating a copy to our Adoration Chapel; the best place to read it. August 21, 2008: Where we read something is an important consideration in our receptivity to its message. This book/encyclical -- due to its subject -- needs to be read during Adoration. It is a beautiful witness to all matters pertaining to Corpus Christi, the Body of Christ, and is best understood in the shadow of Him whom it is about. On the Eucharist can be read quickly, is best read slowly, but needs to be read savoringly. The late great Pope John Paul II wrote this as a letter of gratitude to Our Lord for the occasion of the 25th year of his Pontificate. He called the sacrament, "Gift and Mystery". The Church draws her nourishment from Jesus through the Eucharist and wherever it is celebrated, heaven and earth are united. JPII urges all Christians to be distinguished above all by the "Art of Prayer" and one of the most perfect forms of prayer is silent adoration of Him who made all, gave all and continues to do so. The ultimate goal of every human being is union with God which is made possible through recieving this sacrament above all others. A very accessible read written for the average person. In a word, beautiful!

    I'm no theologian, and I finished this a couple of days ago - enough time for the deeper elements to have slipped away. What I can contribute as a review is that this is very readable. I felt like it was a letter from John Paul II directly to me. I wish I had his depth of understanding about the Eucharist. It should be the summit of our religious life. I have a lot to learn and should probably read this 3 or 4 more times. I recommend this for every Catholic.

I always shy away from encyclicals, expecting them to be esoteric beyond my ability to understand or pay attention. That was not the case here. I wish I could just sit in on JPII's class on the Eucharist. I wish I could adopt him as my father, grandfather, or favorite uncle. I'm so glad that he did the next best thing and wrote encyclicals such as Ecclesia de Eucharistia so that we can "attend his classes" over and over, if need be, and we can have him giving his spiritual encouragement as if it were written specifically to each of us. St. John Paul II, please pray for us.

    This was phenomenal! Pope St. John Paul II had such a gift for being able to explain the complexities of the Catholic faith in simple terms, and this renewed in me a sense of devotion for the miracle of the Eucharist. I especially appreciated his discussion of Mary's relation to the Eucharist, and his devotion to the Mother of God shows through his words. This was phenomenal!

    No era lo que esperaba. Me pareció un poco aburrido, y parece meterse más con los problemas que con la gracia de unidad que presenta la eucaristía. Lo que más me gustó es la relevancia que le da a María en la Eucaristía (último capítulo), usando las imágenes de María en Caná ("Hagan todo lo que Él les diga" / "Hagan esto en memoria mía"), Junto al discípulo amado (al pie de la cruz / al pie de la eucaristía), su presencia en Pentecostés y en las primeras misas, y como primer "sagrario humano" (d No era lo que esperaba.

Claramente Ricardo disfrutó con la lectura de esta encíclica. Dato de color: El documento se publicó el Jueves Santo del año 2003, es decir, el día que recibí mi primer anuncio en una Jornada de Pascua del Movimiento de la Palabra de Dios.

    "The Church draws her life from the Eucharist" is the first sentence in the beautiful document on this wonderful sacrament of the Church. My favorite line and what made me want to start going to daily Mass is from the end of the document: "Arise and eat, else the journey will be too great for you" We need the Eucharist to survive spiritually - otherwise we are dead!
