True Presence

More than 50% of Catholics believe the Eucharist is merely a symbol of Christ, according to a recent poll. The True Presence is a core belief of the Catholic faith, instituted by Christ during the Last Supper. When I joined the Church in 2012, my last hurdle in RCIA was the Eucharist. I had SUCH a difficult time accepting the True Presence, I couldn’t fathom how He was present in the wafer. In truth, I initially thought it was bizarre, and I really struggled with it.
