The preaching of the Church and the administration of the sacraments is the place where Jesus is present. If you would hear the call of Jesus you need no personal revelation: all you have to do is hear the sermon and receive the sacrament, that is, to hear the gospel of Christ crucified and risen. Here he is, the same Christ whom the disciples encountered, the same Christ whole and entire.
