Make copies and distribute them.
This is the most effective way to reach people off of the net. You can make copies to give to friends who have been confused by misinterpretations of Vatican II. Show them that the documents which are often misquoted repeatedly acknowledge the Real Presence and encourage devotion to it. Also, what about giving copies to your Bishop or Priest. If you think your diocese or parish needs to become more Eucharistic, show them what the documents say. You could also check out the full documents from the local library to prove that the excerpts are in context. If you follow the reference numbers from the excerpts, you should be able to find the passage in the full document.
Proving the Church's call for belief and devotion to the Real Presence from the Vatican II documents can be very persuasive. Some Catholics ignore the Catechism because it has been published by a "conservative" Magisterium. Those who call themselves "liberal" often quote the VII document in their defense. However, the changes in the liturgy called for by The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy do not support some of the liturgical changes which are occurring. Of primary concern is the decreased emphasis on the Eucharist to help transform us into holy people of God.
The most persuasive excerpts to make hard copies of are:
Other documents contain references to the Real Presence, but you will probably find these most helpful and applicable.
