An essential resource for the Eucharistic minister
A preparation tool for the person receiving the Eucharist at home
All ministers of Communion will want to have and use these official texts when administering the Eucharist to the sick. It is likewise helpful for the homebound recipient when preparing for this most precious Sacrament.
For such a small publication, this is proving to be a wealth of information and help in ministering to the sick at home. Not only does it give varying Gospel readings but commentaries on the Scriptures, as well as universal prayers. Instructions are easy to follow, distinguishing easily between Priests, Deacons and lay ministers. It gives the sick person a sense of being with the congregation when you can share the commentaries on the Scriptures.
