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.
God wants to unite us to himself, to pour his love into us and to receive our love in return. He wants to be in communion with us. He wants this so much that he humbles himself, becoming truly and completely present under the appearance of simple bread and wine. The question to ask is not only "What is the Eucharist?" but "Who is the Eucharist?"
