Amazing Nearness - Meditations on the Eucharist 2

By Fr Tadeusz Dajczer

This is the second volume in a series of profound new books on the Eucharist. Like its predecessor, it's ideal for anyone who wants to draw closer to Christ in the tabernacle. It opens up a whole new world as we can come to realize just how much God really loves us in the Eucharist.

It contains a foreword by Archbishop Józef Michalik, President of The Polish Conference of Bishops in which he says he suspects the author is 'unable not to talk about God's Love'; he shows us how amazingly near God is in the Eucharist; he strengthens us by saying that in seeking God, we are finding Him; we find Him not through knowledge but through the Eucharist; the book is an exceptional commentary on the Pope's Encyclical “Deus caritas est;” the book is warmly optimistic praying theology.'


This is what a Priest-reader said:

"God just can't stop loving me however bad I may be. He waits for me to go to Him all the time.  He's always there. In his untiring, constant explorations, Father Tadeusz puts the microscope closer still to the reality of God without whom there's no reality.  St. Augustine lost everything he'd ever worked for at the end of his life but he lost nothing. In fact, he gained. In this second book of his meditaions on the Eucharist, the author brilliantly demonstrates how it can be the same for each of us. All our losses can be gains. He introduces us to pathways of untold spiritual joy. In the year of the Priest, this is the book which needs to be on every Priest's bookshelf, to be constantly read and meditated upon- not just by us Priests. It's a message for us all."

Fr Tadeusz Dajczer graduated from the theological faculty in Warsaw, Poland. He later studied at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome where he received his DD. For many years he worked as a professor at the Academy of Catholic Theology and the University of Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski in Warsaw. In 1994 he was awarded the title of Professor of theological sciences from the President of Poland.
