Real Presence: What Does It Mean and Why Does It Matter?

Many Catholics don’t believe that Jesus is really present in the Eucharist. Rather, they see the bread and wine of Holy Communion as mere symbols of Christ’s body and blood. Is that disbelief just a misunderstanding, or is it a blatant rejection of one of the central beliefs of the faith?

In Real Presence, University of Notre Dame theologian Timothy P. O’Malley clears up the confusion and shows you how to learn to love God and neighbor through a deeper understanding of the doctrine of real presence.

A 2019 study by the Pew Research Center found that almost seventy percent of Catholics don’t believe that Jesus is really present in the Eucharist.

O’Malley offers a concise introduction to Catholic teaching on real presence and transubstantiation through a biblical, theological, and spiritual account of these doctrines from the early Church to today. He also explores how real presence enables us to see the vulnerability of human life and the dignity of all flesh and blood.

O’Malley leads you to a deeper understanding and renewed faith in Catholic teaching about transubstantiation and real presence by helping you learn

  • how the doctrine of real presence is rooted in divine revelation and how the Church’s teaching regarding transubstantiation is spiritually fruitful for the believer today;
  • how to make your own the doctrine of real presence by worshipping Christ in the Eucharist and therefore making a real assent to real presence;
  • how the Eucharist, although not the exclusive presence of Christ in the Church’s liturgy and mission, is crucial in growing our capacity for recognizing those other presences; and
  • the important relationship between Eucharistic communion and adoration.

 

How to Get More Out of Holy Communion

Gain more grace — and more joy — from Holy Communion.

If going to Mass and taking Communion has become just another routine for you, don't assume that indifference is an ordinary part of growing mature in the Faith. On the contrary: your love of Communion should be growing stronger. You can strengthen it now with this wise book from a little-known saint, Peter Julian Eymard.

St. Peter shows you how surprisingly easy it is to break out of the dullness that can settles into your soul, obscuring the glory of meeting your Lord in Communion. You'll learn from him how to approach Holy Communion not as a duty, but as a preparation for Heaven. His direction can help you, too, to draw on the spiritual resources God gives you in every Communion.

You'll find valuable directions about what to do when you feel unworthy to receive Communion, as well as useful - and unexpected - advice about how to make your post-Communion thanksgivings more fruitful.

Through Scripture and holy logic, St. Peter Julian Eymard will impress upon you exactly how important Holy Communion is for growth in the spiritual life. Now is the time for you to take up this brief book and let this holy man show you how to transform your Communions into the bountiful sources of grace God wants them to be.

You'll learn:

  • Why Holy Communion must be central to your prayer and work - and how it can be
  • How Holy Communion actually helps you grow in virtue and holiness
  • How Communion helps you bring order and harmony to your human relationships
  • Eternal life: how Holy Communion plants its seed in your soul today
  • Your spiritual life: why it quickly languishes without regular Communion
  • How to avoid the common mistake people make that renders their Communions ineffective
  • Not experiencing any spiritual joy in Communion? What you must do
  • And much more that will transform your Communions from routine observances to dynamic encounters with the living God!
