I really enjoyed speaking to Colleen Dulle for this article, and I especially appreciated the insights of the other interviewees. Sr. Bernadette Reis FSP, who is the English interpreter for Vatican Media, pointed out something that really stuck with me:
“The fathers of the church actually taught that Christ’s presence in the Blessed Sacrament is just as real in his Word,” she explained. “And I think we need to bring that practice back, especially in this time when people may not, not only be able to get to Mass, but may not be able to get to a church to experience the Real Presence.”
I hope you find this insight as edifying as I did. If you have a Bible in your house, you have the presence of Christ in your house. Visit him there!
