Cardinal Martini's book of reflections on the celebrations of Lent and Easter are a wonderful tool for deeper, less distracted spiritual meditation with emphasis on the sacraments, the Holy Spirit, and what it means to be a Christian.
"The reflections of Cardinal Martini set forth in this volume revolve mainly around three main themes: the Eucharist, Easter Sunday, and Pentecost. In instituting the Eucharist during the Last Supper, we contemplate the foreshadowing of what happens in the passion and resurrection of Christ (Jesus freely giving the gift of life for every single sinner) and at the same time, the merciful love of Jesus for his church, and the assurance of his very presence now and forever through the sacrament.
"Cardinal Martini's meditations in the end invite the reader to a more lively Christian experience around the Eucharist, starting with a renewed commitment to the inner life, culminating in a more generous exercise of charity."
