The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

You Are What You Eat
Most of us remember from our childhood using this phrase in fun. However, this expression describes well our system, digested, converted into energy or waste; our food becomes part of us. Yet when we receive Holy Communion, we become united with Jesus Christ so much that we truly become what we receive. Jesus became human so that we might become divine, and in the Eucharist, we truly gain a share in God’s own life.
