Cardinal Raymond Burke has released a new book entitled Divine Love Made Flesh, in which he reflects on Blessed Pope John Paul II and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s encyclicals on the Holy Eucharist.
The book is meant for the ordinary Catholic, according to Catholic News Agency, and “links the Eucharist to each of the Sacraments and to the daily life of Catholics.”

The Newman Society is the designated promoter of the Miracles exhibit at high schools and college campuses in the United States.
Cardinal Burke reflects on the goal of his book:
“[I]t is my fervent prayer that the reflections on Ecclesia de Eucharistia and Sacramentum Caritatis contained in these pages will lead the reader to an ever deeper and more ardent knowledge and love of our Eucharistic Lord.”
He also wrote in the book’s introduction:
“[I]t is through participation in the Holy Eucharist that we best understand what we must do to carry out the new evangelization, namely pour out our lives in union with Christ.”
