The Dogmatic Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of Vatican II reiterates the church's traditional teaching on the manifold presence of Christ in his church, especially in liturgical celebrations: in the priest, the consecrated bread and wine, the sacraments, and when the gathered church prays and sings. Nevertheless, there continues to exist in both scholarly writing and popular piety an almost exclusive focus on the presence of Christ in the eucharistic species. The purpose of this book is to examine the most elusive mode of the manifold presence of Christ mentioned above, that is, as it is symbolized within the assembly that gathers for worship. Using the resources of several contemporary philosophical aproaches, including semiotics, phenomenology, personalism, and existentialism, the book draws attention to the forgotten or or less understood aspects of the belief in the presence of Christ in the gathered assembly and explores the implications of this belief for participating in the liturgy and living the Christian life. While the book is scholarly in tone, it has extremely practical ramifications for the ways in which the mass should be celebrated in millions of Catholic parishes around the world.

It is impossible to separate our knowing of God and our experience of God. Our knowledge of God is an exact proportion to our experience of Him. Authentic Christianity is a life lived in and through the sweet empowering presence of Jesus. The Holy Spirit as the presence of God in the world has been given to us to make the living Christ experientially knowable. We only know God to the degree that we experience the living person of Jesus. Without experiencing Him Who alone is Life we cannot simply live. It is by the continuous experience of Him that we continue to live and develop into His same image. His presence is not a gift for the holy but a gift to make us holy. Come to Jesus. He will take you, hold you and kill your fears, doubts and rebellious nature with the closeness of His embrace.
