There's plenty of evidence, but according to your postings, nothing you would believe. I think a good argument is that Jesus can do anything He would like to do, and why wouldn't He want to nourish His flock?

That is falsely assuming Jesus wants to sit in this wafer til someone eats him...

Jesus does nourish his flock...Spiritually...

Christians are nourished each and every day by the Spirit who indwells us...

2Co 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Every day...Without the Eucharist...

Col 1:8 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.
Col 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Col 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Col 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Col 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;

Well the Spirit must be working within you, because I never used to be able to read your commentary without feeling like I just took 2 Niacin tabs. :)

That being said, Jesus is not "trapped" in the monstrance. He could leave at any time, just like He could have fled off the Cross, but He remains [and remained] ....... to nourish us [to speak to us] and to listen to what we have to say.

Don't you think it would be cool if Jesus came to this earth daily in Body form? Wouldn't you want to see Him? Would you ignore His Presence, or would you run, fly, walk, or drive to catch just a glimpse? That's what we as Catholics have. This is our belief. He is there! This is why so many enjoy reading about the saints, as they all carried the same message of the Living Christ within the Eucharist; no man or woman not fed by the Eucharist, could have matched the strengths of the saints.
