Father Robert J. Fox spent the last two years writing this book on the Eucharist. Mother Angelica, even though she has had serious physical afflictions for years, wrote the preface. It took 6 months, after giving the manuscript for this book to the Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration, to get the preface recently from Mother Angelica with the aid of her sisters. “The wait was worth it,” said the author. “I want this book on the Eucharist to be my last book, after writing 50 others and thousands of articles,” Father told Mother Vicar at the Hanceville Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, founded by Mother Angelica as was also EWTN – world wide Catholic television. Mother Vicar replied, “Oh! You’ll get another idea for another book.” – “Well! after 54 years in Christ’s Holy Priesthood what kind of book could be a better last one than one on the Eucharist which anticipates the heavenly liturgy?” was Father’s reply.

He offers Mass daily at the Hanceville, Alabama Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament – an ideal area to compose this unique and revealing book which people are already asking for. The book is dedicated to Jesus and Mary, then to Mother Angelica who writes the preface on the same theme as the book. Life long Catholics will be astounished at the insights on the Eucharist crossing all time barriers as Father writes from his heart and a life-time of priestly experience, study and prayer.
