The Eucharist is Really Jesus: How Christ's Body and Blood Are the Key to Everything We Believe
When the resurrected Jesus appeared to two disciples on the road to Emmaus, they didn’t know him. He was there in the flesh, talking, teaching, but they didn’t recognize him. Until the breaking of the bread. Then their eyes were open, and everything fell into place. The same is true today. When we recognize Jesus in the bread of the Holy Eucharist―when we understand that it’s really Jesus―our eyes of faith are opened, and the mysteries of the Christian life are unlocked. In The Eucharist Is Really Jesus, author Joe Heschmeyer first explains how Catholic belief in the Eucharist is biblical and reasonable. If you’re used to thinking of Communion as a purely symbolic ritual, you’ll find here a compelling defense of the ancient doctrine of the Real Presence. But even if you already believe it, Heschmeyer shows how that’s not an end, but just the beginning. Knowing that the Eucharist is really Jesus becomes a master key to understanding: -The cross of Good Friday and the empty tomb of Easter Sunday -How to worship God in spirit and truth, according to the Bible -The meaning of our own bodies and their immortal destiny -How to love God and each other every day, like the saints …and more essential aspects of our lifelong walk with Jesus. Like those disciples on their way to Emmaus, we don’t truly know Jesus apart from the broken bread, because the fullness of his truth remains locked away. The Eucharist Is Really Jesus will give you the key.
