Learning through Art: The Real Presence
This painting, called ‘Real Presence’, is a rich example of proclamation of the faith from a Catholic perspective. You can see immediately that it is Eucharistic; the consecrated host takes up the centre around which, and to which, everything is connected. For the New Evangelization, reaching out especially to the baptised but lapsed Catholic, the Eucharistic liturgy is the source of Christian life as well as the summit. Eucharistic art, then, can wonderfully serve the New Evangelization.
