The Road to Emmaus
by Damien Cash
The Road to Emmaus is now offered at a discounted direct purchase price for patrons and visitors to the Blessed Sacrament Congregation's churches in Australia.
In review, Francis J. Moloney SDB, AM, STD, D PHIL (OXON), FAHA writes:
'The publication of The Road to Emmaus marks a turning point in the writing of religious history in Australia. This is a serious affirmation, but I make it as such. We have had some first class histories of religious orders in Australia, but this is something more than that.
There is never a single-minded focus upon the presence of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers and Brothers in Australia. From the first page until the last, the story is set within the religious and political setting of the period ...starting from St Peter Julian Eymard, the founder of the Congregation, down to the present-day Blessed Sacrament religious, attempting to understand their charism in a complex world, rendered more complex by the Theology of the Eucharist articulated at the Second Vatican Council, no stone of the social or religious phenomenon is left unturned. Moments of great grace, moments of failure...it is all recorded here by Damien Cash, commissioned by the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament to write their story, warts and all.
If anyone is looking for a carefully documented history of the religious culture of Australia in the twentieth century, Cash's book will serve as a sure guide.'
