The Second Vatican Council calls the Eucharist the "source and summit of the Christian faith". Yet many Catholics do not understand the fullness of this great gift. According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, nearly 70% of Catholics do not believe in the True Presence of Christ's Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity within the Eucharist.
Although this data is startling, the Eucharist is one of the greatest signs of love Christ has for us. Through the Eucharist, we are united with him in an intimate and beautiful way. Christ continues to invite us to believe in the True Presence through countless Eucharistic miracles that have occurred over the centuries. These miracles are evidence of divine love and the truth of what we receive.
In a special episode of the Chris Stefanick Show, Chris sits down with Fr Robert Spitzer to explore the incredible reality of the Eucharist through Eucharistic miracles. Fr Spitzer, president of the Magis Center and the Spizer Center with specialties in metaphysics, the philosophy of science, and organizational ethics, brings an informative and unique perspective to the conversation.
Beginning with covering the metaphysics of the Eucharist and exploring what 'Transubstantiation' means, the episode ultimately unfolds into an insightful discussion on a number of Eucharistic miracles. These miracles reveal how Christ is truly present in the Eucharist and will encourage the faithful to know the Lord more in this great mystery.
