Several popes have referred to St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868) as “the Apostle of the Eucharist.” Nonetheless, he is not that well known in the universal Church. When it comes to worldwide recognition of his extraordinary life, as well as the many amazing things he did to foster a greater love for the Blessed Sacrament, most Catholics are unfamiliar with him and have never heard his name. That is about to change.
Saint Peter Julian Eymard lived in an era that was plagued by lack of belief in the Real Presence and outright indifference to this core teaching of Christianity – sound familiar? “I fear that people are wandering too far from the Holy Eucharist, that this mystery of love par excellence is not sufficiently proclaimed. So souls are suffering, becoming more sensual and materialistic in their devotional life and inordinately attached to human beings. It is because they don’t know how to find their consolation and strength in our Lord,” he wrote.
30 Day Eucharistic Revival is intended to help you, your children, your grandchildren, and all future generations rediscover and experience a revival of belief in the Real Presence.
“30 Day Eucharistic Revival is a wonderful book that will help people fall in love with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. I’m certain that my son would love this book and want people, especially young people, to read it and experience a Eucharistic revival.” — Antonia Salzano Acutis, mother of Blessed Carlo Acutis
