These 5 books about the Holy Eucharist can inspire you to share this wonderful truth with the children in your life.

This week, Budapest is hosting the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress. This event has been taking place regularly since 1881 with an important focus: It celebrates the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. 

The Eucharistic Congress is the perfect opportunity to talk to children about the Real Presence. This topic is a vital one. Some two-thirds of Catholics don’t believe in the Real Presence, often because they’ve never heard of it or learned about it. 

It is our duty as parents, teachers, and religious education instructors to pass on this central truth of our faith to the next generation.

In honor of the Eucharistic Congress, check out these 5 books about the Holy Eucharist. Hopefully they can inspire you to share this wonderful reality with the children in your life!
