Book Description

Aug. 1 2004
This book offered espeially for The Year of the Eucharist is a collection of fascinating true stories about the Eucharist written by priests, religious and lay people around the world. The stories are contemporary, alive and full of the warmth and joy of people who have been touched by the presence of God in the Eucharist.

Powerful quotes taken from Pope John Paul's Encyclical on the Eucharist are placed after every couple of stories with the full encyclical included in the appendix. Four teachings on the Eucharist are included by four popular Catholic writers, including one by Thomas Bokenkotter, author of the very popularConcise History of the Catholic Church.

A 52 page Communion Prayer section by the now deceased but very holy Father Lawrence G. Lovaskik, DVM offers prayers, meditations and inspirational quotes, poems and the text from famous Eucharistic hymns.

A complete 15 page 'General Index' and a four page 'Index of Authors' by location makes the book a perfect reference for study and sermon material as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comforting stories of healing from the Eucharist May 20 2005
By Glutton for books - Published on Amazon.com
"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 (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is better than chocolate! Aug. 28 2005
By Devout Reader - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars An uplifting book Aug. 25 2005
By Shirley J. Bobek - Published on Amazon.com
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.
