DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE REAL PRESENCE?

In brief, the Eucharist is the sum and summary of our faith: “Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking.” (CCC 1327)

The Eucharist Is the Real Presence of Jesus Christ!

The doctrine of the Real Presence (of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist) asserts that in the Holy Eucharist, Jesus is literally and wholly present -- body, blood, soul and divinity -- under the appearances of bread and wine.

(1 Corinthians 10:16-17;11:23-29 and
John 6:32-71)

“In the Eucharist is the same identical Jesus Who was carried by Mary for nine months in her womb before she delivered Him in Bethlehem. It is the selfsame Jesus Who died on the Cross, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven.” _ Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

Your faith in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist will save you. Your faith in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist will heal you. Your faith in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist will deliver you.

“Faith is (a grace) a gift of God,
a supernatural virtue infused by Him.”
(CCC 153)

“Courage, daughter! Your faith has saved you. And from that hour the woman was cured. (Matthew 9:22)

“Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.” (Mark 5:34) … “Go your way; your faith has saved you. Immediately he received his sight and followed Him on the way. (Mark 10:52)

“Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace.” (Luke 8:48) … “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you. (Luke 17:19) … “Have sight; your faith has saved you. (Luke 18: 42)

At Lystra there was a crippled man, lame from birth, who had never walked. He listened to Paul speaking, who looked intently at him, saw that he had the faith to be healed, and called out in a loud voice, “Stand up straight on your feet.” He jumped up and began to walk about. (Acts 14:8-10)

In June 2010, I took a demonized (partially possessed) woman to a Perpetual Adoration Chapel for ministry. While we were there, the woman had a mystical experience before the Blessed Sacrament -- and she started to believe…

I kept affirming her little faith in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. And as the woman’s faith in the Real Presence grew, the demons withdrew! (The demonic voices in her head were silenced.)

“Do not, therefore, regard the bread and wine as simply that, for they are, according to the Master’s declaration, the body and blood of Christ. Even though the senses suggest to you the other, let faith make you firm. Do not judge in this matter by taste, but be fully assured by faith, not doubting that you have been deemed worthy of the body and blood of Christ.” _ Cyril of Jerusalem [Saint Cyril, Bishop of Jerusalem (348-378) “Doctor of the Church” (Catechetical Discourses: Mystagogic 4:22:9)]

“In order to believe, man needs
the interior helps of the Holy Spirit.”
(CCC 179)

If you need help believing in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, pray to the Holy Spirit -- and pray to His spouse, your Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

“…Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
