666---Search the Books---Day 17 of the Appeal

The Eucharist is so central to the Faith that Jesus left the early Christians that I think it very plausible (even though Scripture was not divided into chapter and verses until centuries later that John's prophecy in Revelation about the number of the anti-Christ may be uncovered in John's gospel in Chapter 6 verse 66. A nugget from How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist:
When he announced the doctrine of the Eucharist in John 6 many disciples ceased to follow him because they found the teaching too difficult (see John 6:66, notice the numbers). Did Jesus yell out, “Oh, that’s okay — take what you like, ignore the rest”? No, instead ..."

Our attitude toward this great gift of Our Lord is a matter of life and death.

I'm asking the readers of this blog and Amy's Open Book to consider buying one copy of her excellent book Here. Now. A Catholic Guide to the Good Life.and of my How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist--you can search through either book on Amazon in the way you might in a bookstore, don't take our word for the books and see.

At the end of the thirty-day period Amy and I will donate whatever royalties we earn from the sales of these books to Food for the Poor.

  1. My books just came - and lo and behold, skimming through Michael's, I found just what I needed to see right now. A description of the organist as the most distracted person at Mass - yup, that's me. Maybe I'll do better this weekend just because I saw that sentence. Thanks, Michael.
