Presence: The Mystery of The Eucharist
What is it that is so special about the Eucharist?
Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life.
Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and its members.
It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.
Jesus said, “This is my Body” and “This is my Blood.” Some say they’re merely symbols of remembrance. Others say they’re really the Body and Blood of Christ, but can’t explain how that’s possible. The Eucharist is the center-point of the Mass–but why?
The answers are here. With deep insight, Dr. Pitre gives a fresh perspective for understanding the mystery that is the Eucharist.
