For twenty centuries countless withesses have testified through their writing, music and works of art to their unwavering faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist. The examples cited in this work have been chosen simply and somewhat at random to illustrate the constancy of this faith in this fundamental truth of the Church down through the ages. These witnesses to belief in the Real Presence are like "voices" echoing the invitation and challenge of Jesus himself who, in providing sustenance for the multitude, not only promised to satisfy their spiritual hunger by giving himself to them under the appearances of bread and wine, but also challenged them to accept the truth of his words with the question, "Would you likewise go away?" (Jn 6:67). It is an existential and personal question that cannot be brushed aside casually. It calls for a response. To neglect it is to throw away the richest dimension of being human, namely, the experience of personal union with Him who alone can satisfy our heart’s deepest yearnings.

About the Editor: After completing the Licentiate in Theology at the Gregorian University, Rome, Father Michael L. Gaudoin-Parker did graduate work in theology at Cambridge University. The editor of Adoremus magazine, he has written extensively on the Eucharist for The Clergy Review/Priests and People. His book, Adore What You Receive (Falcon Press, 1989) provided meditations and prayers for use during adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. He is the author of two other Alba House titles: Heart in Pilgrimage and Window on the Mystery of Faith. He presently lives as a hermit near Assisi where he devotes himself to research and writing on the Holy Eucharist.
