From Bruised Reeds to Patmos Island
This collection of seven books is one ordinary person’s exploration of the relationship between God and the human race, centred around the revelation of Jesus Christ who became One of Us in order that humanity could, in turn, share in the life within God.
Any person who participates daily in the Mass of the Catholic Church will, over the 2 & 3 year Lectionary cycle, hear, pray, and acclaim Scripture passages from every single book of the Bible, both OT and NT. But in addition, the length, breadth, and depth of Scripture which permeates both the Architecture of the Eucharist and the thousands of prayers expressed in its Liturgy is a topic which Michael Mahony takes up in the final book of his trilogy on the Eucharist, From Bruised Reeds to Patmos Island. In doing so, he challenges and recalibrates the term, “A Bible-believing Church”.
He draws upon seminal research by Cistercian Abbot Emeritus, Fr. Denis Farkasfalvy, to explore the symbiotic relationship between the Eucharist and Scripture in a refreshingly new way, one which throws surprising light upon the provenance of NT texts.
