In eucharistic adoration, the faithful spend time in the presence of Christ, who in turn is present to them. In communion services, the faithful unable to participate in the sacrifice of the Mass can still receive its fruit. The Catholic Church wraps both ceremonies inside a larger book called Holy Communion and Worship of the Eucharistic Mystery Outside Mass. A revised English translation invites a renewed acquaintance with these forms of prayer. Where did they come from? What is their purpose? How are they best celebrated? In Eucharistic Reservation, Paul Turner explains the new translation of these guidelines and refreshes all those who find delight in the Eucharistic presence of Christ even when Mass is over.

Paul Turner is pastor of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Kansas City, Missouri, and director of the Office of Divine Worship for the Diocese of Kansas City––St. Joseph. He holds a doctorate in sacred theology from Sant’ Anselmo in Rome. He is a former president of the North American Academy of Liturgy and a member of Societas Liturgica and the Catholic Academy of Liturgy. He is the author of numerous books published by Liturgical Press and a contributor to Give Us This Day.

Reviews

"Father Paul Turner has given us another excellent commentary and pastoral review to the second edition of Holy Communion and Worship of the Eucharistic Mystery Outside of Mass. Turner cites original 1972 'schemas,' Eucharisticum Mysterium, and other historical materials to support the theology of this edition. Turner’s background as a translator for ICEL, gives him an advantage in translating it into everyday language, allowing people to learn the best ways to implement it for appropriate Eucharistic devotions and practices."
Very Reverend John Thomas Lane, SSS, Provincial Superior, Province of Saint Ann (USA), Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament

"The release of any new liturgical text affords a golden opportunity to provide formation and to examine pastoral practice. Father Turner offers us both in Eucharist Reservation. Once again, he delivers what we have come to expect from this liturgical scholar and devoted pastor. With genuine respect for liturgical history and unbroken tradition, he explores how words and praxis have evolved over the centuries. In scholarly detail, he cross-references orations, readings, and rubrics with Scripture, other liturgical books, and Church documents. His book closely parallels the liturgical text so that all ministers may more carefully and correctly prepare the various rites."
Rita A. Thiron, Executive Director, Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions
