Lets Try It Again–Bloggin’ about My Latest Prayer Journal

Cindy Brewer

I’m excited to begin sharing about my upcoming prayer journal which I’ve titled, Down in Adoration Falling, a Prayer Journal to Help Discover Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.

I have been working on this book/prayer journal for about three years, and I’m really wanting to get it published, printed, and into the hands of people who have had a difficult time having a relationship with Jesus in His Eucharistic Presence.

In the book of John, chapter 6, Jesus explicitly declared nine times that He is the Bread of Life.  He explained that this Bread was greater than the manna that saved the forefathers of His listeners while they wandered in the desert for 40 years.

Now that was quite a statement Jesus was making. If it were not for water that came from the rock that followed them or the manna and the quail that God sent to the Israelites, they would have perished in the desert between Egypt and what is now Israel.

Jesus declared that He is greater than this manna and that those who eat the Bread of Life would live forever even if they died, meaning they would receive eternal life in heaven after they pass from this life.

Many of His disciples couldn’t accept what Jesus was saying and decided to no longer follow Him (John 6:66), but His 12 closest friends had remained. They didn’t understand, but as Peter had said, “You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68).

In the Last Supper accounts in the books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Jesus explained the Bread of Life in more detail. The bread and wine that He was giving to his disciples was His Body and Blood that would save mankind from sin. Imagine the questions swirling in His disciples’ minds.

But they received this sacrament (an outward sign instituted by Christ to give us
grace – not just a symbol) and handed on this sacrament to their followers. Those in the Catholic and Orthodox faiths still follow Christ’ teaching and receive His Body and Blood in the Eucharist.

Down in Adoration Falling, uses quotes from the Bible, the Mass, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Saints to help the reader understand the truths held in this sacrament. I can’t wait to get my own copy in my hands to begin journaling about Jesus in the Eucharist.

Please pray that I find a publisher soon. Thank you.
