From the Publisher
From the author of the bestselling, The Holy
Longing, comes a book about the central expression of faith
for hundreds of millions of Christians, the Eucharist.
More so than anything else, the Eucharist is what anchors many
peoples'' life, prayer, and ultimately the way they live their
lives. In this deeply personal book, Father Ronald Rolheiser delves
into the history and meaning of this sacred tradition, drawing upon
the insights of various scripture scholars, theologians, and church
teachings. With personal warmth and great insight, he reflects on
his own particular Roman Catholic upbringing and the centrality
that the Eucharist has within that tradition. At the same time, he
looks at other denominations' traditions around the Eucharist.
Our One Great Act of Fidelity is an investigation into the
ways people secure their faith and belief and discover true
intimacy with God and each other. Ultimately, however, it is a
spiritual and a personal statement of how Ronald Rolheiser
understands the Eucharist and why he celebrates it every day.
Ronald Rolheiser is a specialist in the field of spirituality and
is currently President of the Oblate School of Theology in San
Antonio, Texas. Father Rolheiser is the author of The Holy
Longing, The Restless Heart, Forgotten Among the
Lilies, The Shattered Lantern, and Against an
Infinite Horizon. He writes a weekly column that appears in
more than 90 Catholic publications. More information on his work
