After presenting his little daughter with a crucifix on the occasion of her First Holy Communion, the father asked her if she knew the difference between the figure of Jesus on the cross and the Host which the priest holds up at Mass. “When I look at the cross,” the child said, “I see Jesus and he is not there. When I look at the Host, I do not see Jesus and he is there.”
