The Real Presence in the words of John Chapter 6 Verses 1-59

The Gospel of John Chapter 6 Verses 1-59 is the "Biblical Foundation" for the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

Jesus Christ says that "He is the Bread of Life" and that His Flesh is True Food and that His Blood is True Drink.

The Council of Trent in its infinite wisdom totally relied on these passages in John : 6 now known as the "Bread of Life Discourse" when it enunciated the Doctrine of the Real Presence in the 14th Century.

Christ had a plan to be with us in the most humble way forever by being substantially present in the "'Sacred Host" each time we receive Holy Communion.

Christ is present among us -- Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. This is what is meant by the Real Presence.

The Real Presence is a "Magnificent Gift" given by Christ himself to us -- Mortal Beings.

It is something to be marvelled at. In the Gospel of Saint John Chapter 6 Verses 1-59 we come to understand the Beauty and Meaning of the Holy Eucharist.

Everyone who is a Baptized Catholic Christian must believe this "Infallible Teaching". Everyone should believe that Jesus Christ through his omnipotent presence in the Holy Eucharist loves each one of us in a deep, personal, and unconditional way like no other "Divine Being" is capable of loving us.

We are all "Special" in the eyes of Jesus Christ. His Real Presence is indicative of that.

Jesus Christ wants each one of us to say in His or Her own way -- Jesus, I believe in your love for Me.
