"Meditations on the Holy Eucharist"

In 2004, Aquinas Institute published a 235-page book entitled “Meditations on the Holy Eucharist”. The book was a compilation of religious writings, homilies, essays, testimonials and poems written by bishops, priests, religious nuns, seminarians, members of the laity and children. It also contained the Encyclical of St. Pope John Paul II, “Ecclesia Eucharistia”, with permission from the Vatican.

Msgr. Pedro Lopez-Gallo was instrumental in the approval and timely publication of the “Meditations on the Holy Eucharist”. This book had two other spiritual directors before Msgr. Gallo but somehow, it was God’s will that the book be published during the Year of the Holy Eucharist proclaimed by Pope John Paul II.  Msgr. Gallo reviewed all articles and approved them with an Imprimatur.  Then, Msgr. Gallo presented the complete draft of the book to Archbishop Raymond Roussin of Vancouver, who put an Imprimi Potest on the book.  The “Meditations on the Holy Eucharist” also received the official endorsement by the Secretary-General of the 48th International Eucharistic Congress as well as the endorsement of Bishop Albert Legatt of Saskatoon. 

The book was pre-released with a Mass of Thanksgiving at St. Mary’s Church in Vancouver.  It was officially released at the 48th International Eucharistic Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2004. The book was sold in Canada, the United States and Europe.

The “Meditations on the Holy Eucharist” won the Honorable Mention Award at the Independent Publisher Awards in New York in 2005.
