An Ex-Feminist's Belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist

"The Eucharist was also the center for me. And I kept wondering why belief in the Real Presence was not omnipresent among Christians. After all, if people were willing to embrace the miracle of God humbling Himself to become a human being, and a tiny baby at that, then why couldn't they see echoes of that same miracle in bread and wine mysteriously becoming Christ's Body and Blood? A symbol did not die on the Cross but a real Person, and that Person had left a real sacrament, not a symbol, to show His love."
