Catholic Connection – September 15, 2023

Joe Heschmeyer is the author of “The Eucharist Is Really Jesus.” He joins us. Teresa’s Fact Check Friday segment on loneliness and the days of ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld.’ [Only one hour due to our pledge drive.]



Segment 1 – Intro and News


Segment 2 & 3 – The Eucharist Is Really Jesus: How Christ’s Body and Blood Are the Key to Everything We Believe
“In The Eucharist Is Really Jesus, author Joe Heschmeyer first explains how Catholic belief in the Eucharist is biblical and reasonable. If you’re used to thinking of Communion as a purely symbolic ritual, you’ll find here a compelling defense of the ancient doctrine of the Real Presence. But even if you already believe it, Heschmeyer shows how that’s not an end, but just the beginning.”  (Originally aired July 31, 2023)
