Praise for Presence

“We live in an age that does not orient the heart toward mystery. As a consequence, too many Catholics approach the Holy Eucharist with—let's be honest—indifference. The Augustine Institute has provided a much-needed tonic. Presence is a perfect blend of storytelling to fire the imagination, personal testimony to stir the soul, and theological instruction to inform the intellect. This lively and compelling series on the central reality of the Catholic religion is ideal for catechists, teachers, parents of children preparing for First Communion, and anyone who finds himself longing to love Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament more but not knowing where to begin.”

Presence - Study Guide (Spanish)

Presence - Study Guide (Spanish)

¿Alguna vez te has sentido como si Dios estuviera lejos? Toda la historia de la salvación es la historia de Dios, que se hace presente a su pueblo —en el Edén, en el desierto, en el Templo, y finalmente en la Persona de Jesucristo. Pero la historia no se detiene ahí. Él todavía se encuentra entre nosotros—escondido. Bajo la apariencia de pan y vino, Jesucristo está realmente presente en su Cuerpo, Sangre, Alma y Divinidad. En la Eucaristía, el Dios del universo nos invita a una experiencia más profunda de su amor perfecto—y te está esperando.


Presencia explora el misterio radical del amor de Dios, que se hace manifestó en la Eucaristía, y muestra cómo Dios realmente está presente en este sacramento, para ayudarnos y fortalecernos en cada paso que recorramos en nuestra vida. Al explorar la historia del amor de Dios por su pueblo en las Sagradas Escrituras y en las enseñanzas de la Iglesia sobre este sacramento, Presencia nos invita a una comunión más profunda e íntima con Dios. Él está ahí esperándonos—todo lo que necesitamos es recibir su don.
