Liturgy and the Real Presence of Christ – Video

Many are aware that Catholics believe in “the real presence.”  In this video, Dr. Italy explains the various ways that Jesus Christ is truly and really present in the Church’s liturgy, culminating in the Eucharist.

The “real presence” is a phrase that began to be used about 150 years ago by high-church Anglicans to affirm that the Eucharist was more than an empty symbol, that in the Mass, the Body of Jesus Christ is truly present.  It has since become a phrase most commonly used by Catholics.

In this video, Professor Marcellino D’Ambrosio (aka “Dr. Italy”) explains that the Church actually believes and teaches that Christ is truly and really present in every liturgical celebration of the Church in a number of beautiful and powerful ways, the Blessed Sacrament being the most unique and powerful.
