While focusing on the three major eucharistic storms of history, this book exposes their primary attributes of denial and disbelief. The marginalization of the Real Presence, common over the past half century, bore fruit: half of all Catholics are unaware of the Churchs teaching on the Real Presence.This aura of disbelief explains why massive numbers of Catholics walked away. Since the 1960s, the worldwide toll exceeds one hundred million souls. No one has any idea how large the final statistic might be, but the fallout silently continues.Communion in the hand while standing, received from a eucharistic minister who often shouldnt be there, is the most visible example of a failure to teach the essence of Catholicism. It is also an open portal to abuse.Critically, a significant percentage of Catholics have failed to understand what the Early Christians believed and died for, and what the Church has taught for two millennia: There is no survival without the Eucharist.Yet hope abounds. The Eucharistic Storms explains why a return to reverence, no matter how long it might take, is all but assured.
