"It is Jesus who is present in the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist, which He gave to us at the Last Supper. So, the Pope prays for an hour each evening just feet away from Jesus."

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:19-20)

So can you; so can we all. Just join hands with another person to pray, and Jesus is right there beside you.

Since Arthur may still be worshiping his Our Lady of Fatima statue (do you think he was using sarcasm?), I'll put in my two cents. While Christ is surely present when you pray, He is not present in body. In the Eucharist, he is living, present in His Body. That's why fervent Catholics get so excited about Eucharistic Adoration (and, of course, Communion). Have you read of the Eucharistic Miracle at Lanciano? Here's a snippet (with a link to more of the story):
The analyses were conducted with absolute and unquestionable scientific precision and they were documented with a series of microscopic photographs.

These analyses sustained the following conclusions:
  • The Flesh is real Flesh. The Blood is real Blood.
  • The Flesh and the Blood belong to the human species.
  • The Flesh consists of the muscular tissue of the heart.
