I am a former Protestant going through RCIA, pursuing conversion to the Catholic Church, and my Protestant family is very against this. I used the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist as my main reason for converting, because if someone told you God was literally present somewhere, wouldn’t you want to be there? So the question was asked “What’s God like then?” “I would think if Jesus was really there, I’d be prostrate, or dancing for joy, it would be life changing!” But the fact for so many unfortunately is that you would never know they truly met God literally in the Eucharist and received him.
My argument was that people may struggle to believe or may not always think of it that way, but if it’s literally God in the Eucharist, shouldn’t that be something that jumps out to us so much that we can’t help but worship him?
It’s a thought that I have, but I’d also like to know if there are other arguments or ways to address this issue that some people have. Thank you.
