Catholic Answers Live Host Patrick Coffin explains the Catholic belief in Transubstantiation to an interested caller.

Catholic Answers is one of the nation’s largest lay-run apostolates of Catholic apologetics and evangelization. Its mission statement explains its purpose: Catholic Answers is an apostolate dedicated to serving Christ by bringing the fullness of Catholic truth to the world. We help good Catholics become better Catholics, bring former Catholics “home,” and lead non-Catholics into the fullness of the faith.

I find these miracles interesting not because they manifest themselves but because were reminded that Jesus is always present among all of the faithful and the world at large.  Seen and unseen.  Were not obligated to believe in these miracles happening in the world but its nice when God decides to manifest himself under the species of the Eucharist.  God Bless and Peace to His faithful.

This was so beautiful I had to include it.  May you be inspired as I am by the Lord.

“A Eucharistic flash mob in the centre of Preston, organised by the Capuchin Franciscans on Ascension Thursday 2011.

A small team of Catholic evangelists mingled with the crowd to hand out cards and explain what was going on. Here are some of the reactions….

“What is this about? What is happening? What is this about?”

One young girl said: “I’ve not seen anything like this since Church.”

“Are they doing this all day? … Will they be doing it again? … Are they doing this any where else?”

Two young women asked: “Why does God allow hurt and pain in the world?” They agreed it was not God’s fault but ours. Then they asked: “Why doesn’t Jesus come again?” We explained that He is here in the form of bread, but would come again and we invited them to think about Him now.

“Is it religious? What is inside that thing?”

A man said: “What is that guy doing?” An old woman with him replied: “That’s Jesus. Show respect.”

“This is so moving! It is the first time I have seen it done outside. I can’t wait to tell my parish priest!”

Thanks to Sean Zaniboni, Gerardo Gonzalez and the team for filming and producing the video.

Quoted from above video:

“Eucharist is one of a 10-video series introducing viewers to the “depth dimension” of Catholic doctrine. This video explores the Eucharist in Scripture and Church teaching and the importance of the sacrament for personal growth and building community. The program uses acted scenes, artwork and images to further enhance the warm, humorous and challenging presentation of Father Himes.”

Quoted from above video:

“This exclusive clip is from Episode 7 of CATHOLICISM, entitled BREAD OF HEAVEN – The Mystery of the Church’s Sacrament and Worship.
In Episode 7, Father Barron explores the ancient practices of the Church’s worship that endure to this very day, and the notion that “all value is summed up in the liturgy, the supreme act by which we commune with God.
Considered by the Catholic Faith to be “the source and summit” of its identity and mission, the Eucharist is the central practice of the Church’s culture. Father Barron describes all the parts of the Mass, and shows how the Sacred Liturgy embodies the whole of the Faith in diverse places as Jerusalem, Rome, Chicago, Orvieto, Mexico City.
Please share this with others!”
