The flesh of our Savior

September 3

“They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer, because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ, flesh which suffered for our sins and which the Father, in his goodness, raised up again.”

-St. Ignatius of Antioch, Letter to Smyrnaeans (110 AD)


Today’s Reflection:

Do you think believing in the Real Presence is more our less difficult today than it was for people in the time of St. Ignatius? Why or why not?
