Articles Explaining the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

Project host:

The Cardinal Newman Society

Project description:

This project collects thoughtful articles which explain the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They will be gathered from many sources and are updated as new materials become available. The only criteria used in selecting them are: (1) they provide a simple, but accurate explanation and (2) they are short articles or papers and not books. There is a parallel project for books and pamphlets on explaining the Real Presence. If anyone has a useful resource to add to this file, please forward the link to: The subject line should be “Resources for Explaining the Real Presence.”
