Ego Eimi - It Is I

Falling in Eucharistic Love


About this item

Belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist has declined drastically over the past fifty years. For the love of the Lord and the good of souls, how can we help reverse this trend?

Whether you are a believer or struggling, this book will help you develop a personal relationship with Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. In these pages, Fr. Armand de Malleray looks afresh at traditional Church teaching on the Holy Eucharist. He demonstrates that it is implemented with precision, strength, and beauty in the time-tested Traditional Latin Mass missal.

In his engaging and accessible style, Fr. de Malleray explains the significance of each precious detail of the traditional Eucharistic liturgy, from the opening words of the Preparatory Prayers, “Judge me, O God,” to the importance of punctuating the words of Consecration, to the meaning of the celebrant's genuflections before and after the elevation.

Fr. de Malleray explains essential doctrines such as transubstantiation, the concomitant presence of Christ's Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, and the nature of the Eucharistic fragments. He also describes in moving detail Our Lady's role in drawing us closer to her Eucharistic Son.

Replete with real-life stories, modern-day references, and cultural and historical reflections, Ego Eimi will inspire you to worship the Real Presence as an ardent believer, orient you to the invisible realities occurring, and foster a greater love for our Eucharistic Lord in your heart. You will learn to treasure the Holy Eucharist more deeply through Scripture, Church teachings, and philosophical reasoning. Experience the Eucharistic Fire: embrace the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and adore God's gratuitous love.

Guided by the Church in which our Eucharistic Savior dwells, you will also learn how belief in the Real Presence:

  • Surpasses other forms of God's presence 
  • Is the central mystery and core tenet of our Faith 
  • Manifests God's divine mercy as reflected in the prayers of the traditional Mass 
  • Trains us in contrition and prepares us for a favorable eternal judgment 
  • Deepens our love so that each time we worship will feel like our first, last, and only Mass
