By François Mauriac
The Eucharist is capable of informing and inspiring the faithful, but also of enlightening those who have yet to encounter Christ or his Church. As a novelist, Mauriac battled with the mystery of evil; here, he brings into sharp relief the ever-new promise of God’s love—that he has come to save us. Like the hagiographical works of Georges Bernanos, here is a profoundly personal act of faith in which Mauriac brings the stuff of Catholic tradition to rich, abundant life.
“This is the belief of the most ordinary among the faithful. These are the feelings of one Christian among a thousand others, before the small Host. Such is the invisible God he sees, the hidden God he discerns.” – François Mauriac
