The Real Presence

John Heron

This, the presidential address of May 1974, ranges over a number of issues that are arising at the time before focusing on the real presence of Christ in the eucharist, welcoming the contribution towards restoring the full understanding of this in recent Roman Catholicism by Dom Odo Casel and showing how this had continued as the Reformed Church's position over the centuries. The paper does not seek to discuss the mode of the presence of Christ in the Sacrament so much as the need for contemporary worship to acknowledge Christ's presence in all dimensions of worship, that, as reports on worship to the General Assemblies of 1970 and 1973 affirmed, Christian worship shares in the worship of Christ.
