IRRESISTIBLY DRAWN TO THE EUCHARIST
From among the many journal entries written by Concepción Cabrera de Armida (Conchita), mother of nine and foundress of the Sisters of the Cross, the compiler of this selection offers us carefully chosen “mystical” writings about the Eucharist. Regarding the meaning of the word “mystic,” the author refers us to Saint Thomas, for whom the essence of the word lies in the fact that when in a mystical state, one’s reason is not only illuminated by faith, but one’s soul is also driven to work under the impulse of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These writings are ordered chronologically, in order to follow Conchita’s spiritual development and at the same time to display her spirituality and contribution to love for the Blessed Sacrament. This book, therefore, contains a good source of eucharistic spirituality for which so many are hungering today.
About the Author: Fr Juan Gutiérrez González, M.Sp.S., was appointed by his congregation, the Missionaries of the Holy Spirit founded by Fr. Félix de Jesús Rougier in 1914 under the inspiration of Conchita, to study the theological aspects of the case for Concepción Cabrera de Armida’s beatification in Rome. The texts in this book have been taken from another book written by this theologian, Concepción Cabrera de Armida, Cruz de Jesús. Vida Mística e itinerario espiritual, San Luis Potosí (published by La Cruz de Jesús Maria), 1998.
