Book-Writing Update

I've been doing a little research for the book, and I am so grateful for all that the Lord's teaching me. I've found some really beautiful quotes about prayer and about the Eucharist.

Here are some on the Eucharist from Pope Saint John Paul II:

“When the disciples on the way to Emmaus asked Jesus to stay ‘with’ them, he responded by giving them a much greater gift: through the Sacrament of the Eucharist he found a way to stay ‘in’ them.
Receiving the Eucharist means entering into a profound communion with Jesus [in which He abides in us and we in Him. This] ... profound and mutual ‘abiding’ enables us to have a certain foretaste of heaven on earth.
God has placed in human hearts a ‘hunger’ for his word..., a hunger which will be satisfied only by full union with him. Eucharistic communion was given so that we might be ‘sated’ with God here on earth, in expectation of our complete fulfillment in heaven.”
 (Remain with Us, Lord, no. 19)

Many thanks to all of those who have been praying for this work! Please keep it up--I need it. 

Please also pray that the Lord will multiply my time and, if it's His will, give me a chance to make a writer's get-away for some concentrated work time. Thanks and God bless you!
