Ave Maria Meditations
The simplest way to express what Christ asks us to believe about the Real Presence is that the Eucharist is really He. The Real Presence is the real Jesus! We are to believe that the Eucharist began in the womb of the Virgin Mary, that the flesh which the Son of God received from His Mother at the incarnation is the same flesh into which He changed bread at the Last Supper; that the blood He received from His Mother is the same blood into which He changed wine at the Last Supper. Had she not given Him His flesh and blood there could not be a Eucharist.
+Servant of God, Fr. John Hardon
