Holy Communion and the Renewal of the Church
by Bishop Athanasius Schneider
"Preferential option for the poor": this formula is not only applicable to the marginalized, defenseless and vulnerable. "The Eucharistic Jesus ... is indeed the most poor, weak and defenseless in the Church," Bp. Schneider says. This book is a passionate plea for the faithful and the clergy to be aware of the supreme importance of receiving Our Lord with the appropriate preparation, devotion and reverence. The renewal of the Church cannot be brought about without a profound devotion to the Eucharist.
Referencing the lack of true devotion present in the attitudes of many in the presence of the Blessed sacrament, Bishop Schneider urges that “only when we try to cure this wound of the Eucharist, only then we will have a real and stable renewal of the Church. A Springtime.”
