Jesus promised us a Kingdom, and He kept His promise. When His Father raised Him from the dead, He established through His own resurrected Body (which is the Eucharist) His Mystical Body (which is the Kingdom). He said, “[T]he kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Mt. 3:2). And so it is—it is as near as our local parish. For where the King is present, there is the Kingdom. And where the Eucharist is, there is the King.
