"Truth"? What is "truth"?

At risk of sounding Pilatesque.... "Pontian?"... I'm wondering what "truth" means.
At least in this context:
May your Sacraments, O Lord, we pray, perfect in us what lies within them, that what we now celebrate in signs we may one day possess in truth. Through Christ our Lord.

Am i the only whom that struck as odd?
What do we celebrate only in signs, not in truth? Do we not posess, are we not in the presence of, well... the Real Presence, the "true" Christ at the celebration of the Mass?
Wonder how the post-communion prayer read before the new translation...
