From the Eucharist to the Trinity (Bernadot)
By Marie Vincent Bernadot, O.P.
From the Eucharist to the Trinity is the culminating work of Fr. Marie Vincent Bernadot’s reflection on the practice of receiving the Eucharist. In the Introduction to this new edition, Sr. Maria of the Angels writes, “The basic idea, as the title suggests, is that ardent reception of the Eucharist makes possible the indwelling of the entire Trinity; through Holy Communion each divine Person is increasingly present in the soul and active according to the particular properties of each.” The Introduction highlights the way in which Fr. Bernadot saw the written word as a fruitful way of communicating God’s desire to dwell within us. Bernadot engages the wisdom of the saints and offers practical advice about how to maintain union with the Trinity in work and suffering. From the Eucharist to the Trinity is a wonderful book for those hoping to deepen their desire for the Eucharist and let the Trinity take root in their hearts.
“The Sacrament of the Altar...[is]...the Sacrament in which all the rest receive their consummation and crown.”
