Pope John Paul II referred to the Holy Eucharist as "the greatest treasure of the Church," and yet even many devoted Catholics have a very limited understanding of this powerful sacrament. This book will change all that. The reader will come away with a completely new awareness that the Eucharist is not just about receiving Communion; it's about transforming your daily life.
Deeply based on the Scriptures, the writings of the Saints and the teachings of our two most recent Popes, this profound and remarkably readable book will introduce you to some of the "hidden" truths of the Eucharist - truths that have always been embraced by theologians, saints and mystics, but have rarely been passed on to the average person in a meaningful way. In The Seven Secrets of the Eucharist, these truths are finally made accessible to all, as author Vinny Flynn shows how each reception of Holy Communion can be a life-changing experience.
No matter how much or how little you already know about the Eucharist, the "secrets" revealed here will bring you to a new, personal "Emmaus" experience, again and again. Perfect for personal devotion, catechesis, study groups, book clubs, and theological studies, The Seven Secrets of the Eucharist will rekindle the "Eucharistic amazement" called for by Pope John Paul II.
Available as a paperback book (Item# 1001090) and as a DVD (Item# 4003010). The DVD is 60 minutes long.

|Review:||I use the product for educational purposes. I found it to be extremely informative & helpful. The dvd fulfilled my expectations. I humbly suggest, it would be helpful to have the 7 Secrets listed either inside/outside of the dvd cartridge. Thank you very very very much for the opportunity to share my thoughts. I am humbly greatful. May God's peace be with you always. God bless you.

|Review:||This book should be required reading for all Catholics, especially Catholic school children.

|Review:||This book was used successfully by our Catholic book club. Other readers in the church have also read the book after hearing about it from our club members. One CCD teacher gave one to each of her teen students as an end of year presant. Several adult education teachers have found it to be an excellent teaching tool.
