29. The real presence of Christ in the Eucharist
We know that Christ died, resurrected, ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God from where he intercedes for us. However, he is also present in his Church in many ways: in his Word, in the prayer, in the poor, in the sick, in the sacraments; and mainly under the sacramental species of bread and wine that contain the Body and the Blood of Jesus Christ, as the faith teaches.
This mystery is best understood with the heart, because it is the fruit of God's love. He had to depart, but he wanted to stay. Something impossible for men, but possible for him who was born of the Virgin, is seated at the right hand of God and is truly present in the Eucharist with his body, blood, soul and divinity. From the beginning, Christians believe in this truth.
