Jesus said: “My people, there are many people who do not believe in My Real Presence because they do not understand transubstantiation or they have not been taught this core of their faith. It is rarely heard about from the pulpit, and there are even some priests who do not believe either. In order to understand the meaning of the Real Presence you could go to ‘The Catechism of the Catholic Church’: (1374)
‘In the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist the Body and Blood, together with the Soul and Divinity, of Our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained. This presence is called ‘Real’-by which is not intended to exclude the other types of presence as if they could not be ‘real’ too, but because it is presence in the fullest sense: that is to say, it is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes Himself wholly and entirely present.’
Holy Communion is consecrated at the Consecration of the Mass and the bread becomes My Body and Blood as a sacramental presence under the appearance of bread. This belief in this transubstantiation is also found in the Catechism: (1376)
‘The Council of Trent summarizes the Catholic Faith by declaring: Because Christ our Redeemer said that it was truly His Body that He was offering under the species of bread, it has always been the conviction of the Church of God, and this holy Council now declares again, that by the consecration of the bread, and wine there takes place a change of the whole substance of the bread into the substance of the Body of Christ Our Lord and of the whole substance of the wine into the substance of His Blood. This change the Holy Catholic Church has fittingly and properly called transubstantiation.’
Truly I am Present in the consecrated Host so you can receive Me intimately in Holy Communion and worship Me in My Host at Adoration. Believe in My Real Presence because I am with you in My Blessed Sacrament to the end of time.”
