The Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist- An Exhortation by Father Casey

Here is a powerful homily on the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist/Blessed Sacrament by the brilliant priest Father Casey.

The Incarnation & Protestants

Here is a powerful video by renowned Catholic apologist Michael Voris on the Incarnation of Christ Jesus and it’s relationship with the Mystery of the Eucharist. The video also highlights the differences between Protestants and Catholics and emphasises the historic and patristic reality of the belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist that was faithfully held onto by the early Christians. Our brothers and sisters in the Faith defended this belief with their lives and for good reason.

Let us pray to our Lord for wisdom so that we may continue to walk with Him and not fall away from Him like the people in the Gospel of John who said: “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” and to this Jesus said: ““Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life within you.  He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.  As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me.  This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.”
