Pope John Paul II once said that the priest is "above all, a man of the Eucharist." In the spirit of this statement, Msgr. Stephen Rossetti weaves together reflections on the Eucharist from over twenty notable contributors, including Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop Donald Wuerl, and the late Cardinal Avery Dulles. Moving personal narratives combine with timely and accessible spiritual reflections to make this book a must-read meditation on the importance of the Eucharist in the life of the priest, and that of the Church.

"Eucharistic wisdom."

"From the hearts and minds of shepherds—well known and not— here is a lively gathering of eucharistic wisdom that renders priesthood freshly palpable. Clearly, the priests and bishops who come together in this volume to witness to the power of the presence of the Lord in the Eucharist in their lives, draw their strength and joy from this most blessed of sacraments. Born of the Eucharist is a real opportunity for each of us priests to return to the Lord’s Table, the source of our vocation, and be renewed in the joy. Msgr. Stephen Rossetti serves his brother priests very well in hosting this gathering."

Rev. Raymond P. Roden, PsyD
