New Book From Opus Dei Prelate

Bishop EchevarriaThe Prelate of Opus Dei, Bishop Javier Echevarría, has written a new book titled, “Eucharist and Christian Life.” So far it’s only available in spanish but there are some excerpts on the Opus Dei website like this one:

“Behold our God”

Christianity is God’s nearness to man. It is a close friendship and an intimate relationship between God and man. It expresses the familiarity of a beloved son welcomed with indescribable joy, music, celebration and a great banquet (cf. Lk 15: 22-24). This reality of an especially spiritual content also has a sensible dimension which finds its fulcrum in the flesh of Christ.

“The Word was made flesh”, writes St. John (Jn. 1: 14), thus summarising the plan of salvation that the Father had fixed by means of his Word. The nearness of God does not only mean that he moves and governs everything. It is not an Alliance limited only to a legal pact of which are conserved some paper documents as testimony. It rather brings with it a personal closeness that has made itself sensible and tangible. The Son of God has assumed our nature and thenceforth in the words of Tertulian, “the flesh is the hinge of salvation”.

The book is being published by Rialp Publishing in Madrid.
