Real Presence: How Do You Show Reverence?

Recently, I heard a story about Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR. He was traveling with a Protestant minister in a car and, when they passed a Catholic Church, Fr. Benedict made the Sign of the Cross. The minister asked him why he did this. Fr. ...Benedict explained that it was out of reverence for Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. The minister told him, if I believed what you believe, I would get out of the car, run inside the church, fall on my knees and never get up again.

With regard to having faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, I found the story interesting and thought provoking. I am sure Fr. Benedict Groeshel believes in the Real Presence!

If a Protestant asks you, “Are you saved?”, it’s fun to ask them, “Saved from what?” After all, if somebody is saved, they must have been saved from something. But what’s surprising is that Protestants disagree with each ot...her about what Jesus saved them from. Some say they are saved from sin. But I am still a sinner. Some say they are saved from death. But some day I will die. Some say they are saved from Hell. But if I were to presume that I am definitely not going to Hell, that would be the sin of presumption.
