Eucharistic Meditations on the Gospel
Author: Concepción Cabrera de Armida (Conchita)
First Printed: 07-10-2001
These thirty-one brief meditations were inspired by a wide range of Gospel passages, meditated upon in the presence of Our Blessed Lord in the Holy Eucharist, in which Jesus defines Who He is in a variety of statements beginning with the words, “I am.” And so we are led by an expert in the spiritual life to a deeper understanding of the mystery of Jesus as the Alpha and the Omega of all things, the Resurrection and the Life, the Good Shepherd, the Vine, the Light of the World, the Bread of Life, the Word made Flesh, the Way, the Truth and the Life, the Teacher, the Gate, the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, and He Who Is, among many other titles. Those who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, ponder deeply the truths that are presented here and make a sincere effort to incorporate them into their lives will find themselves marvelously transformed by the indwelling presence of the Lord Who comes to nourish us in so many ways in the Holy Sacrament of the Altar. It was the author’s fervent desire that our faith in Jesus be strengthened by reading these, her dialogues, with the Lord, that our hope in Him as Savior of the world might be increased, and that our love for Him and for one another might grow as well.

"Meditations on the Eucharist: Venerable Concepción Cabrera de Armida (Conchita) wrote these Eucharistic meditations in 1912. The publication now called "I AM: Eucharistic Meditations on the Gospel," was timed to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the Incarnation of the Word. Each of the 31 sections in this book begins with a Gospel citation to put readers in the correct frame of mind, and continues with an explanation and exploration of various chapter topics (I Am the Way, It Is I, Be Not Afraid, My Father and I Are One). Each chapter also contains an Act of Thanksgiving and a Commitment for Life based on the readings and questions in each chapter." --Crux of the News, October 29, 2001
