This book is a compilation from various speeches, homilies, and official documents that Pope Benedict has delivered since his election in 2005 as Pope. Its primary purpose is to serve as a reflection or meditation on the Eucharist or the Mass.
Each short chapter contains a different reflection or meditation which is three to six pages long.
In each section, The Holy Father reflects on various aspects of the Eucharist. He also reflects on how the Eucharist has been instrumental in the lives of various martyrs. These martyrs, for example, often gathered for the Eucharist even when it was legally forbidden.
