The Eucharist Gift and Task


In the present work, Fr (Dr) Louis Malieckal, CMI, explains ‘symbolism’ of the Eucharist from a rainbow of angles, points of view and ‘ shades of meaning. His elucidations make the Eucharist not merely an object of devotion, but a challenging action or programme of Christian life lived out daily. It challenges people of all walks of life – priests, religious and laity. What is unique in this work is the clarion call for a better understanding of the doctrine of the ‘real presence’ acceptable to other Churches, illustrating that the bonds that unite the Churches are stronger than the barriers that separate them. Moreover, The Eucharist -Gift and Task provides salient features of an inculturated
Eucharistic Liturgy suited to the Indian context and culture.
