THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH (50 pts) ~ Pt. 2: Nature of The Catechism
Father John Corapi...
"I can well imagine when Jesus came into a town and the people saw Him and gathered around Him, before he even opened His mouth they must have been mesmerized by the force of His presence.
There's a Sacramental reality of presence. You know my dear friends I can tell you that whenever I come before the people of God I am humbled by them. I look out and I see you and I have to recall who you are. You are the Father's children made in the image and likeness of God.
You're kind of like tabernacles of the Lord. In church, we have the Most Blessed Sacrament, the Eucharist is reserved in the Tabernacle, the True, Real, and Substantial Presence of Jesus, and we worship Him. You and I in another way when we receive Jesus after we are baptized and in a state of Grace, He assimilates us to Himself and I can call you in an analogical sense the tabernacle of the Living God."
