Meeting God in the Upper Room: Three Moments to Change Your Life
Each of the book’s three parts is dedicated to one of these key moments in the history of our faith: the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist, the post-resurrection appearances of Christ to his followers, and the Holy Spirit descending on the apostles at Pentecost.
The walk with the Lord is a continued encounter with Him in the power of Holy Spirit. In Meeting God in the Upper Room, Monsignor Vaghi captures the various integral ways in which we continue in our day to meet the Risen Lord—in the sacraments; in our prayer lives; in our profession of Easter faith; in our works of charity and service; in our devotion to Mary, Mother of the Church and our Mother; in the experience of the gifts of the Holy Spirit; in the call to evangelize and our efforts to evangelize in our own day—in our homes, workplaces, places of leisure, in our travel. All of these make up the rich and continued spiritual legacy of that Upper Room and what happened there.
In writing about the Upper Room, Monsignor Vaghi tells of not just its historical significance, but its profound spiritual significance. It was there that Christ and his disciples retreated from the world in order to teach and learn, respectively, how they could carry on the faith. And as we set aside time to enter the “Upper Room” of our own life, we discover that Jesus is waiting to meet us there as well.

Excellent! Truly inspiring and really deepens my love and relationship with Jesus in the upper room and His beautiful call to live the message of the upper room in my own life
This is well written. I’m really enjoying the book.
I've just started using the book as closing prayers for my meditation time. It fits naturally with the Ignatius teaching of placing your self in the scene feel like you are there with the apostles and Jesus.
Having returned in May, from our 1st trip to the Holy Land, which included time in the Upper Room, this book was timely. I thank God for the grace received having spent time in the same location that our Lord instituted the Eucharist; where He began the priesthood; where He passed on to the apostles the power to forgive sins (sacrament of reconciliation) and where the commencement of discipleship and building our Church took place. This book makes one realize what a gift we enjoy at every Mass.
I'm currently in the process of reading this book as part of my Lenten Devotion and during Eucharistic adoration. Talk about a book that speaks to you about the events before and after the Paschal mystery. Lots of scripture references and insights, but also an easy (not heavy) read.
