"Do you realize that Jesus is there in the tabernacle expressly for you -- for you alone?"

Catholics believe that Jesus is truly and substantially present in the consecrated Host, making adoration of the Eucharist not an act of idolatry, but an opportunity for intimacy with Our Lord. It is one of the greatest mysteries of the Catholic Church, something that few of us truly understand.
