I read in a report from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops that 60% of those who say they are Catholic believe in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. The remaining 40% believe that the Eucharist and our going to Communion are only symbols. Are the figures accurate? A. The figures might be accurate, but the pollster might be asking the wrong question. If you asked one hundred Catholics a different question, say “Do Catholics believe the Holy Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Christ?”, perhaps more than 90% would say “Yes”. Nevertheless, widespread poor Catechesis over the past decades has left Catholics confused and uncertain about the Real Preserve, and we should all be concerned about that. If you have any questions you think would be helpful for me to address in The Pastor’s Corner, please call me at 563‐7145 or email me at frfred@midcoast.com. Thank you – Father Fred
