These thirteen short chapters on the mystery of the Eucharist are from sermons delivered as archbishop of Munich. The topics are covered in a deep theological and spiritual way, resulting in a balanced and very useful synthesis of doctrine and piety. Although the tone is not academic or specialist, certain parts may require some basic cultural and theological formation, since the author seeks to illuminate some issues that have led to objections or doctrinal errors.
