Sometimes loosely, sometimes closely, the fantastic legends of the Holy Grail were always tied in one way or another to the real mystery of the Eucharist. An exciting new book has just been published that explains what exactly everyone has been looking for, whether they know it or not. The book is The Grail Code: Quest for the Real Presence, by Mike Aquilina and Christopher Bailey. Published by Loyola Press, it is well described as ‚Äúa literary and theological detective story, centuries in the making, that ends where the Grail legends begin ‚Äì in the room where Jesus gathered his closest friends for the last time, spoke the blessed words, broke bread, and shared a sacred cup.‚Äù Besides telling a fascinating literary and historical story, the book also offers a profound analysis of contemporary culture‚Äôs deepest yearnings.
