Corpus Christi by Bishop Athanasius Schneider

A powerful appeal for the restoration of kneeling to receive Holy Communion on the tongue is put forward in Bishop Athanasius Schneider's new book "Corpus Christi. Holy Communion and the Renewal of the Church." As with his previous book Dominus Est: It is the Lord!, Bishop Schneider combines edifying stories of love for the Blessed Sacrament with patristic sources and sound theological teaching.

External reverence for the Blessed Sacrament, especially at the time of receiving Holy Communion, is a powerful means of increasing interior devotion. This is only to be expected since as human persons, body and soul, God has provided for our worship of Him to be incarnated in the signs and symbols of the sacred Liturgy.

The book is listed on the UK Amazon: Corpus Christi: Holy Communion and the Renewal of the Church and is available from Gracewing.
