Product Description

Dominus Est--It is the Lord!: the definitive statement on the reception of Holy Communion, "the most personal encounter possible between the Christian & God". Originally published by the Vatican Press

Holy Communion is not simply a convivial moment of spiritual nourishment; it is the most personal encounter possible in this life between the faithful Christian and his Lord and God. The best interior attitude for this encounter in one of receptivity, humility, and spiritual childhood. Such an attitude, by its very nature, is expressed through gestures of adoration of the Church, summarized by the sayings "cum amore ac timore" (with love and fear) from the first millennium and "quantum potes, tantum aude" (dare to do as much as you can) from the second.

To illustrate how this attitude manifests itself, the author shares stories of three "Eucharistic Women" known to him from the Soviet underground. This book encourages Catholics of the third millennium to treat the Lord, in the august moment of Holy Communion, in a manner appropriate to the Church's tradition.

The author presents a strong argument for a return to the traditional practices of receiving Holy Communion kneeling and on the tongue. To the reader who may be questioning weather or not a return to these practices is desirable, they would do well to read this book. To the reader who is already convinced of this, they would do well to buy dozens of copies of this book and give them to their priests.

I have read the whole book with delight. It is excellent. - Francis Cardinal Arinze prefect, Congregation for Divine Worship
