Fr. Robert Barron: The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

"When the priest effects the Eucharistic change...he's not speaking his own puny words, but rather at the consecration the priest speaks in persona Christi, in the very person of Christ...He speaks with the full authority of Christ which is why his words have the power to change the elements...that's why for Catholics the only proper response when you're in the presence of those transformed elements is to bow down and worship."
