On Scripture and the Eucharist
edit_button

The Eucharist is truly the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ. Any statement that downplays this Real Presence is a lie. The Real Presence of Jesus Christ is the center of our faith. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, the Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life" (CCC 1324)

The Real Presence of Jesus was taught by Christ Himself and has been passed down through the apostles and the centuries. At the Holy Mass we take part in the Sacrifice of Christ at Calvary and receive this Sacred Food. In Eucharistic adoration we pray before the true King of Glory. The Eucharist is God! It is that beautiful.

“We should consider those moments spent before the Blessed Sacrament as the happiest of our lives.” - St. John Vianney

For a multitude of scripture passages on the Eucharist, please see the Real Presence Association.
