...A joy to behold is the news that writings on the Eucharist by Father Professor Dajczer have now been issued as audio books. Listening intently to the whole series can only be compared to a retreat leading on the way of conversion.

All audio books are read by an outstanding actress Halina Łabonarska. When we listen promptly to the letter of the text where every single word is distinctively given, each sentence gains in proper melody and the whole permeates the inside of our soul, heart and mind – we receive the height of reception. It becomes a true religious experience as well as spiritual and artistic feast. Being well acquainted with the topics of spirituality is something for what Halina Łabonarska shows an exceptional predisposition. (…) A magnificent work has been done that cannot be overrated. I think that Fr. Prof. Tadeusz Dajczer who passed away in September last year takes a great pleasure in listening to it from above in heaven.

A one-of-its-kind complement to the series is also a newly-issued memoir by Fr. Prof. Dajczer called “A tough patch of life” written while at the seminary and being the testimony of his first years of priesthood. From the diary emerges a picture of a priest living the Eucharist from his very first years.

God, Thank You for This Book
...Amazed I found once more how very needful it is not to ascribe to yourself any particular credit because of your successful past or achievements as God who sees us, who is now present and touching us at the moment, teaches simplicity and humbleness. And it is not impossible to kneel down in the middle of a forest path and say: “God, thank you for giving me life… Thank you for this book”. Let me finish with the quotation from “The Sacrament of Presence” by Fr. Prof. Tadeusz Dajczer: Eucharistic Jesus, You are the One I await going to the Holy Mass. But in actual fact it is You who long for me first. I say then after St. Faustina: I cannot live without You, but I feel that You also cannot experience happiness without me.

Forbidden Drinking of Blood
This book shall help those who swallow body and drink blood of God himself while yawning out of boredom
The Eucharist has grown stale to us. No more it is a scandal or controversy. We yawn and look impatiently at the watch. Meanwhile, when Jesus told his disciples: “You shall eat my body”, it sounded scandalously. I think that the sentence: “After this many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him.” John writes in the Gospel not accidentally in chapter 6 and verse 66 – as Fr. Augustine Pelanowski comments. - It is clearly seen that Jesus did not want to soothe anything in what he was his saying – adds in his newest book “Increase Our Faith” Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer. The Author of the best-selling book “The Gift of Faith”...

Can Fr. Dajczer’s books convert
a non-believer?
...Truly shocking is the message of the chapter “Loving a Departed One” [from the book Increase Our Faith by Fr. T. Dajczer]. Fr. Dajczer wants me to understand that my departed mother, irrespectively whether she is in heaven or purgatory, is turned away from earthly life, in which I am still head over heels; I am continuously chasing after something I love so much. Reading this part of the book, I see how much needs to be changed in me so that I saw the reality the way Fr., Dajczer does. The meditation under the title Every Day Prepares amazes me with the unusual statement that I shoud see the world as a puppet show where God is the only mover and shaker. As a consequence I should live by what I am given in every moment. Having asked in the title of another chapter the question For God’s Glory? the Author encourages me to try to adore God in my every action. The chapter Eucharistic Love Gives Birth to Saint ends with the call that “I am to become so small that the Holy Spirit, Father of the small and poor can sanctify me; I need to become the instrument for Him to transform the face of the earth.” In such an attitude there is another answer of Fr. Dajczer to my question whether his book could convert a non-believer.

I would come hard to me to enumerate all thoughts by the Author which moved me all the more that reading them over and over again I still discover something new in them.

Someone said that it is not worth reading good books, it it worh reading only the outstanding ones. That is why I do not regret returning to the trilogy on the Eucharist by Fr. Dajczer.

Meditations on the Eucharist
...Becoming curious, I asked a few questions on the message of this new book. And from a few sentences I heard in answer, the words I’ve only you… got to me and somehow touched me. I turned around and left to hide my emotion…, or maybe a twinge of heart...

And exactly such was my first encounter with the book by Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer. But was it only with the book? Now, when I hold it in my hand, I cannot tell I am simply reading it. I am not reading it just like that. It is one of those book I pray with. I try to meditate, talk to God. I try to enter the dialogue with him asking the words: Where Do You Live, Teacher? Where am I to look for you, my Lord? And to hear that still present answer: Come and see. As after all precisely these words are the invitation for me to want to meet him in the Eucharist.

If I were to tell in what consists the uniqueness of this book, then it would be that it allows me to encounter God. That it help me to stand in truth before him without focusing on the book, but on Him. That it introduces me into the mystery of the Eucharist where the priest at the altar becomes the second Christ.

He seeks Until He is Weary
This book captivated me from the very sentence. “I look at my life and I am constantly getting lost.” I thouhgh to myself: it’s about me. And I was not mistaken.

I am reading further: “My life is a constant getting lost so that He could find me, that He became more and more needful, more and more close. So that I were constantly discovering that »seeking me, He sat down in weariness«„ That last sentence returns in the book like a refrain. “In weariness You sought for me” – this verse comes from the sequence read in Divine Office and refers to Jesus’s meeting with the Samaritan woman. I felt moved by a picture of Jesus tired out by my continuous running away from Him, making life difficult, returning sin. “In the Eucharistic encounter, Jesus regularly finds me quite lost. Yet I am normally lost, needing to be found. So no need for regrets. If I am lost I can only be found in Eucharistic love. He can only find me when I am lost and beginning to search for Him. Otherwise He will not find me as I do not need Him…”

I fear God of love

The latest book by Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer is continuation of his meditations on the Eucharist. The first part under the title “The Mystery of Faith” was published last year; this one I have in my hand is entitled “Amazing Nearness”. It is an unusual meditation. It is difficult to summarize or discuss; one needs to simply read or even better meditate it. Nowadays we are flooded by devotional and theological literature. The meditations by Fr. Dajczer amaze with freshness. There is the evangelical simplicity in them, they emanate with some force stimulating to conversion and prayer.

...It is [the book The Mystery of Faith] a sign of how much God wants to talk and talks to me, he wants to give me himself and indeed he gives in the reality, in the facts of my life. I cannot resist the feeling that I am reading an excerpt of my own diary that I had never been keeping (…); that Someone who knows me better than I do my own self had looked into the inside of me and verbalized what I cannot even name ...

Meditations on the Eucharist
(a review of the book The Mystery of Faith)
...The meditations are led in the first person and so they have the character of a personal reflection. This is the reflection of a priest that may be of help to any believer craving to move closer towards this great mystery of God’s love to us – the Eucharist: “Finally I may get to see that He allows me to adore Him in the palm of my hands at least for a moment as He only has me. I’m everything for Him. And He for me? Is He everything?”...

Is It Possible
That God Has Only Me?
“I’ve only you”. These words from the last chapter of the book “The Mystery of Faith” by Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer sound strong and puzzle. How can God have only me if He has created billions of people for whom he died on the cross? Does God love me more than others? When my mother, lying in a hospital bed which a few day later turned out to be her deathbed, said she loved me most, I was not glad as I did not believe it. I even told her, what must have hurt her that “mother tells so to each of us”. Today I know that when she said so to everyone, she was telling the truth. She did love each of us most. The language of love is different from that of the books of logic. From one female reader of Fr. Dajczer’s book I heard that great Love radiates from its pages. Perhaps because of the same reason another female reader, a university research worker, wrote that in her feelings the content of “The Mystery of Faith” is written “with the hand of God Himself”.

Why is “The Mystery of Faith” Worth Reading?
The town of Łochów
On the 11th of April during a meeting held by the parish members of the Catholic Action unit in Łochów the participants shared their impressions on reading the latest book by Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer “The Mystery of Faith” that since autumn of 2007 has already attained 6 editions. In the introductory discussion one of the participants named Andrew admitted that after having already read the book twice, he became cognizant of what is for him the evangelical pearl, the treasure worth much more than anything else. The author of the book, Fr. Dajczer succeeded to convince Andrew that his receiving the Holy Communion almost every day is “touching” the Almighty God…

A woman by the name Daniela was amazed that Fr. Dajczer writes the way as if he knew her problems… The chairman of the parish community of the Catholic Action stressed the fruitfulness of the advise to pray with work. Because he drives a lot, all the more he experiences the usefulness of carful and controlled driving with no temptation of bravado. He convinced himself the meaning of “slowing down” the pace of action in the special intention for God. Now he is of the opinion that everyone will certainly find in Fr. Dajczer's book something as if addressed especially for that person…

How to Fall in Love With God?
What is so special about this little book which – as they say – has already shaken not few Catholics?

...The most shocking part of the book is the scene of vision that I may call the vision of priest Tadeusz.

Here there is a priest who says the Holy Mass. When he begins to consecrate the Host, his thought runs towards the Cenacle. All of a sudden the walls of the church begin to fall. On the consecration of wine the priest realizes that the faithful ran away from the church. As chips of the ceiling crumble and fall, the priest covers the Host, the chalice and the communicants with his body. I shall not reveal the details of the scene ending. I can only say that its culmination helps the priest to realize what God tells someone receiving the Holy Communion: “I, the world’s ruler, am Master of heaven and earth. Nonetheless I find you to be priceless. I take care of the whole world yet I tell you, I’ve only you.”

The author of the book gives us to understand that he does not consider himself better than others, that he experiences many weaknesses of human condition. But at the same time he convincingly shows that our weakness and indignity no obstacle for God in loving us. The Lord God is like a virtuoso capable of playing the violin even if its strings break. “The poorer the human instrument, the greater God’s glory. He can create masterpieces from poor human instruments.

What am I to do to fall in love with the Lord God? The hint is as follows: “More than reading books, you will learn about God by receiving the Eucharist. He comes to you in Communion, accepting you as if speaking: you are receiving everything. Do you need anything else?”

Review: T. Dajczer, The Mystery of Faith, Warsaw 2007, pp.127.
...This rather small book helps the reader to look into the mystery of the Eucharist in a completely new way. The Author uniquely and interestingly takes up the issues that are in a certain manner known to all and presents them in a new light. The freshness of his approach contributes towards entering anew the greatest mystery of our faith.

One could not refrain from recommending these meditations to consecrated persons and not just to them...
