Bishop Robert Barron:
The Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist

For my keynote talk at the 2020 L.A. Religious Education Congress, I spoke about the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Vatican II says that the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. However, recent polls show a widespread misunderstanding of the Eucharist and a massive failure in communicating the doctrine of the Real Presence. It is time for all of us—Catholic catechists, educators, and evangelists—to pick up our game about this absolutely essential sacrament!
