In his latest CathBlog, Most Rev Kevin Manning DD, Bishop Emeritus of Parramatta, comments on the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, in the context of the introduction of the New English Translation of the Mass.

"One might well ask: 'Has the reality of Christ’s Presence nowadays been downgraded or lost because of disputes about words, Church politics, marketplace Churches, or the uninformed role of the laity?'," Bishop Kevin writes.

"It would be absolutely contradictory if the Eucharist, which symbolises the unity of the Church, served as a catalyst for disunity."
