As Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz, Bishop of the Diocese of Lincoln, illustrates, the truth is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Father Hardon demonstrates his marvelous ability to isolate key areas of concern in Catholic doctrine and display, without hesitation, a clarity of true teaching and practical piety. This book is a Eucharistic catechism, a devotional manual, a response to current heterodox confusions, a clear presentation of the Catholic Church’s teachings on the Real Presence of Christ in the most Holy Eucharist.
