Recently I was conversing with a young lady who was interested in the Catholic Church, and when I began to attempt to explain the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, she responded, "Why not?  Why couldn't the God who created the universe choose to make himself present in His Body and Blood in the Eucharist?"  This is…
