This little book of reflections for Eucharistic Ministers aims at deepening their commitment to that ministry and their response to the call of the gospel. As quoted from Michael Paul Gallagher SJ: 'When we take time to pause and listen to our hearts, in the surprise of silence we find ourselves encountering more than the mystery of our small life. We experience our desire for something more than outer living. I would say that here, so to speak, we run into God.' It is this running into God and its consequences that are explored here for Eucharistic Ministers.
Royalties from the sale of this book will go to the Peter McVerry Trust. The Trust supports young homeless people to break the cycle of homelessness and move towards independent living through the provision of a continuum of care services.

A small book of reflections for Eucharistic ministers aims at deepening their commitment to that ministry. It is intended naturally for Eucharistic ministers in the Roman Catholic Church but its simple chapters have value for those of other denominations.
