USCCA18 Chapter 17 part 2- The Eucharist: Source and Summit of Christian Life
Archbishop Lucas offers insights on the US Catholic Catechism for Adults Chapter 17:
The consecrated bread has become Christ’s Body. The consecrated wine has become Christ’s Blood. Jesus Christ is substantially present in a way that is entirely unique. This happens by the power of the Holy Spirit through the ministry of the priest’s or bishop’s acting in the person of Christ during the Eucharistic Prayer. At Mass, when we are offered the Host and hear the statement “The Body of Christ,” we answer, “Amen,” that is, “Yes, I believe.”
The Most Reverend George J. Lucas leads the Archdiocese of Omaha.
