When we take our eyes off God, we turn them to other things. And often, the things we turn to aren’t fulfilling, they leave us yearning for more. We try to fill a void with something only He can fill.
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.
