Is the Eucharist Just A Symbol? Does Scripture DISPROVE the Real Presence!?

Scripture I. Old Testament (a). Foreshadowing of the Eucharistic Sacrifice Gen. 14:18 – this is the first time that the word “priest” is used in Old Testament.

Young Earth Creationism vs. Old Earth Evolution: The Catholic Position.

God is Love.  He perfect, omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), and omnibenevolent (all good).  Being Love in his very essence, he gives freely of himself to another, for the sake of the other, expecting nothing in return.
