Real, not symbol

"The Eucharist was also the center for me. And I kept wondering why
belief in the Real Presence was not omnipresent among Christians.
After all, if people were willing to embrace the miracle of God
humbling Himself to become a human being, and a tiny baby at that,
then why couldn't they see echoes of that same miracle in
bread and wine mysteriously becoming Christ's Body and Blood?
A symbol did not die on the Cross
but a real Person,
and that Person had left a real sacrament,
not a symbol,
to show His love."
