OUR ONE GREAT ACT OF FIDELITY
WAITING FOR CHRIST IN THE EUCHARIST
By Ronald Rolheiser
Published by Doubleday, $18
In his new book Our One Great Act of Fidelity: Waiting for Christ in the Eucharist, popular Catholic writer Fr. Ron Rolheiser lays out a spirituality of Eucharist. It’s a series of personal reflections from his life as a priest and a dedicated Christian.
He begins by telling the story of the little girl who woke up at night frightened and disoriented, convinced there were monsters under her bed. She ran to her parents’ bedroom. Her mother took her back to her own room, turned on the light, showed her there was nothing there, then said: “You don’t need to be afraid. God is with you here in your room.” The girl replied: “I know that God is here with me, but I need someone here who has some skin!”
