About-

This volume contains six sermons delivered during Lent of 1919 at St. Paul's Church (Knightsbridge) and at St. Barnabas's Church (Oxford).

"Every time that we make our Communion, every time that we are present at the offering of the sacrifice, every time that we visit the reserved Sacrament, we are met by a challenge. It is the challenge of our Lord, who recalls our minds to what He is and what He has done. There is before us the memorial which is at once the reminder to ourselves and the presentation to God the Father, the memorial of the human life of God the Son. We see the stainlessness of His purity, the completeness of His holiness, the greatness of His self-sacrifice. By our Communion we claim that, as we plead all this before the Father, so also we receive it into ourselves. We are the Christ-bearers, filled with the power of His life, able, if only we will use that power, to reproduce its splendour. And the supreme triumph of the Christ of the Eucharist is as He conforms our lives to HIm."
--from chapter 6
