More so than anything else, the Eucharist is what anchors many people's lives, prayers, and ultimately the way they look upon the world around them. In this deeply personal book, Fr. Ronald Rolheiser delves into the history and meaning of this sacred tradition, drawing upon the insights of various scripture scholars, theologians, and Church teachings. With warmth and great insight, he reflects on his own particular Roman Catholic upbringing and the centrality that the Eucharist has within that tradition. At the same time, he looks at other denominations' traditions around the Eucharist.
Our One Great Act of Fidelity is an investigation into the ways people secure their faith and belief and discover true intimacy with God and one another. The perspective he shares in this book results in a unique reflection upon the sacrament, showing how so many people around the world and Fr. Rolheiser himself understand the Eucharist and why they celebrate it every day.

"Father Rolheiser's Our One Great Act of Fidelity offers a series of personal reflections on the Eucharist. Stretching his meditations across inter-denomination and inter-religious lines, Fr. Rolheiser presents Eucharistic understandings to unite and heal us in the oneness of God's love. In these pages, we find the aspirations of a committed Christian for the unity and peace that are the fruit of communion with the Lord." (Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York)
