The Eucharist and Christian Perfection - Divine Eucharist
Extracts from the Writings and Sermons of Venerable Pierre-Julian Eymard.
Imprimatur 1912. (original Imprimatur, 1876).
This is a series of meditations originally given for retreat; however, the author states that it is intended rather for spiritual reading. There are 15 sermons, originally given as 3 sermons for 5 days. Some of the subjects include: Prayer, Its Necessity and Character; Does God Love Me?; Humility and 11 others. We have not seen a book that covers this subject so thoroughly. “The whole code of Christian perfection was first preached by Christ in His sermon on the mount. Pere Eymard has taken those bare, fundamental principles and clothed them with the Eucharistic spirit.” Cardinal Gibbons.
