Eucharist

A Real Presence

The Catechism of the Catholic Church begins its section on the Eucharist by saying: “The Eucharist is the ‘source and summit of the Christian life.’ The other Sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole of the spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself.” As Catholics we believe that the Eucharist is really and truly Jesus’ Body and Blood, Soul, and Divinity. In fact, writes Fulton Sheen, “The mark of a Catholic is the willingness to look for the divine in the flesh of a babe in a crib, and the continuing Christ under the appearance of bread and wine on an altar.”
