by Msgr. Charles M. Mangan
This 30-page booklet is the text of two moving and inspirational talks given April 1, 2005, at the National Meeting of the Institute on Religious Life in Mundelein, Illinois. The first talk is “Living the Eucharistic Mysteries,” and the second is “Mary, Woman of the Eucharist.” Deepen your love for the Eucharist, and “enroll in the school of Mary,” as Pope John Paul II urged us, to really understand and love her Son Jesus. Monsignor Mangan, who worked for several years with the Vatican’s Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, speaks from a pastor's heart in this encouraging talk on the basics of prayer and the spiritual life.
