From a young age, (now St) Pierre-Julien Eymard wanted nothing more than to be a priest. Once ordained, young Fr Eymard quickly developed a deep devotion to his Lord in the Holy Eucharist. Consumed by his great love, Fr Eymard devoted his life to increasing devotion to Jesus in all tabernacles.
In this biography of the "Priest of the Eucharist", Fr Tesnière, a novice trained by St Pierre-Julien, showcases the prayerful devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament that characterized St Eymard's life. Through extensive quotations from St Eymard's journal, Fr Tesnière, charts Fr Eymard's growth in holiness and ever-deepening love of the Lord. Culminating in an account of the beatification process, this book shows the immeasurable power of the Eucharist in forming souls to be like Christ.
