Comforting stories of healing from the Eucharist May 20 2005
By Glutton for books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"201 Inspirational Stories of the Eucharist," by Sr. Patricia Proctor, is a collection of short stories written by normal people from all over the world, who believe that they have experienced healing either through praying before the Blessed Sacrament and/or through the reception of communion. Many of the stories are only a page long and can easily be read before bed or during a quick break in the day, when the reader is seeking uplifting news about faith for encouragement during a trying day. Several of the stories are followed by quotes from one of Pope John Paul IIs last encyclicals on the Eucharist, which was prepared for 2004 - 2005, which he named the Year of the Eucharist with the hope that the designation would encourage more people to learn about the power of prayer before the Eucharist. The stories are written as simple conversations and easily accessible to any reader.

Personally, I have found praying in front of a tabernacle at a church to offer me more peace from anxious time, than praying at any other place. However, I do not feel that the miracles presented in the stories may be as persuasive to a non-believer, as the stories that Patricia Proctor has compiled for her "101 Inspirational Stories of the Rosary" book. Most of the stories in her "201 Inspirational Stories of the Eucharist" are of inner healing that people have experienced and faith they felt renewed by praying in front of the Eucharist and/or through the reception of communion as a sacrament. If you are looking for a book about miracles attributed to the Eucharist and/or communion, to help rejuvenate the faith of an adolescent, or if you are searching for really extraordinary stories that have been scientifically proven to help your own faith during a period of dryness, or if you are just a curious seeker who enjoys reading stories of the unexplained that have been attributed to God's intervention, you might fight Briege McKenna's "Miracles do Happen" or Joan Carroll Cruz's book "Eucharistic Miracles," more fulfilling books for you needs.

The book includes an great appendix which includes Pope John Paul II's entire encyclical letter on the Eucharist and a selection of prayers for communion by Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik that was originally published as a separate book. More information on the book and the Eucharist can also be found on the author's web site (...)

This book is better than chocolate! Aug. 28 2005
By Devout Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book should be mandatory reading for all Catholics to remind us what a wonderful gift we have in the Eucharist! We HAVE the real presence! and we sometimes take Him for granted. This will inspire you and bring you to a deeper prayer life. After reading this you can never thank Jesus enough for what He's done for us! We are so blessed by Him!

Sister Patricia outdoes herself again in yet another great book!

This book has so many different stories that speaks to the reader in honest everyday language and touches the heart of many Christians.

I loved it, my friends and family loved it and can hardly wait for the next one to be written.

This is a "Chicken Soup" type book that will touch and enlighten you!!

Highly recommended and a great gift!!

An uplifting book Aug. 25 2005
By Shirley J. Bobek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read this book plus one of my own stories is in it. It is a very uplifting book and makes you feel closer to God.

After reading some of the stories, I was so happy to go to mass and receive communion. I wanted to experience the joy that others felt when they received Chirst into them.
