On The Road To Perfection
Episode 169: We Are Consuming Flesh And Blood

We cover the facts in the first thirty seconds, making this the easiest and fastest podcast listen one might every have. We are consuming flesh and blood, soul and divinity when we receive the Eucharist; and we thought it important to discuss that and proclaim it.

After reading an article in a Catholic magazine, this topic seems important. We doubt some of the claims by the author concerning the True Presence – the flesh and blood – of Our Lord being the Eucharist, and we explore that a bit which should be useful for parents.

Remembering that we are the first educators of our children, parents need to be able to articulate, in the proper context for the age of the listener, that the Eucharist is the flesh and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ.

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Catholic Faith. We cannot assume that when we teach it once, those who are ignorant will suddenly understand it; they may not even hear it the way we are saying it. Flesh and blood are hard to see in what appears, feels, and tastes like bread and wine. Faith reveals that reality to us, and we are called to pass along that faith to others.

Children and inquirers may believe it is flesh and blood, but not know why it is flesh and blood, or how it becomes so.

In this episode we talk about all things regarding the Great gift, and how to believe – and pass on that belief!

After all, believing in reality is pretty simple.
