Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and its members.
It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.

What experts are saying about Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist
“Here is the Presence at the heart of everything — the heart of the Scriptures, the Church, the world. The Eucharist is where our Savior and King, reigns within His kingdom, and renews His covenant with each one of us. This video series makes the reality of His presence and sacrifice so abundantly clear and practical. This teaching will evoke a response from the heart and mind.”
Founder, Saint Paul Center
“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.”
