"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—indefference. 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, and 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."

-Christopher Check, President, Catholic Answers

"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."

-Dr. Scott Hahn, Founder and President, St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology
