Marvelous is this presence of Christ, who is among us, not only spiritually, not only in remembrance and in hope, but in the divine mystery of the real and essential presence. It is the entire Christ who is present - true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary, the crucified and risen one, who descended to hell and ascended into heaven. He is there, in the midst of his church: "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men." What one day will be fulfilled in the kingdom of God is present already here. He who will one day come in glory is already present here hidden.
