This publication is an attempt to show the role of the Eucharist in the spiritual life of Blessed Charles de Foucauld. First of all, this mystery of the Holy Mass shaped his spiritual life and specific attitudes he adopted, which seem to be extremely current. This fact prompted the author to reflect more deeply on Karol’s internal life, which resulted in the subject of this work: The Eucharist in the spiritual life of Blessed Charles de Foucauld. The biography of Blessed Charles de Foucauld is presented in Chapter 1. It is implied in terms of his reference to the sacrament of the Eucharist. In this way it was shown that in the life of Blessed Karol, which can be divided into three periods, the Mass became a place of growth in holiness. Chapter 2 deals with the theological and spiritual specificity of understanding the mystery of the Eucharist. Karol de Foucauld experienced its many dimensions, among which the principal were: the mystery of sacrifice, feast and communion. This experience of the Eucharist was derived from the teaching of the Church. The last chapter closes the work points to the fruits of the Eucharist. These are specific things that Blessed Karol took in his own life. Among them, he particularly accepted the attitude of adoration, poverty, service and love of neighbour. The author hopes that this work will allow noticing and emphasize the role of the Eucharist in spiritual life. The Holy Mass is the source from which everything flows and to which everything goes.
