"This man welcomes sinners and eats with them"
'Any book that takes us back to the practice of Jesus is to be welcomed. Do This In Memory Of Me focuses on the role that meals played in the ministry of Jesus. He scandalised the pious by welcoming sinners and eating with them. It is the same Jesus that we encounter in the Eucharist. Therefore, the Eucharist must be a place where sinners experience acceptance, healing and forgiveness. When Jesus says, "Do this in memory of me", he is saying that we, too, must welcome sinners and eat with them. Therein lies a great challenge. Simson deserves our gratitude for spelling it out so clearly.' - Flor McCarthy SDB, author of New Sunday and Holy Day Liturgies
