    Helping @Emma Pope on communion in Theology Concepts forum. For your information: purpose of communion.

    I was catholic about six years ago. I was confused if catholics actually eat and drink the B/B of christ, they dont. They are not cannibalis. Heres my story why:

    I asked my priest this he almost fell out the chair. I was telling a story to another cradle catholic. I told her I used to go to church daily. I had seizures because the blood is actually wine. I can see how Catholics are indoctrinated to "say" they are taking the blood and body of Christ. The lady gave me this look like "it's not like That." I stopped drinking "the blood." Another priest said it's alright to just take the bread.

    Why would they say that if they believed the bread and body Is jesus himself?

    Here is a good link

    Transubstantiation and the Real Presence | CARM.org

    They believe the accidents are actual bread and wine not body and blood. Transub. makes "the presence" of jesus thus his presence becomes the eucharist. Jesus becomes the church when they all commune in the presence of jesus.

    They say bread and wine is jesus blood and body because of concecration Not because it is in itself.

    Ask a catholic if the bread and wine Before cons. is jesus actual blood and body they'd probably look at you nuts.

    Cannibalism is Actually eating flesh and blood of a person not of accidents turned into the blood and body of christ via concecration.


    I post this as a post in another thread. I'm all for clarification since I used to be a teacher. So that's my intent. Enjoy your convo.

    Trying to find scriptures not commonly used for the Eucharist

    Accidents: Bread and wine before consecration
    Substance: Presence of jesus as bread and wine
    Church: 1 Corinthians 10:17
    Real Presence: John 6:48-50; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17
    Eucharist: John 6: 48-51

    Among other verses about communion in the bible regardless the type.

    Catholic-- liberal & ecumenical
    I never realized that but it makes sense since the priest drops a piece of the bread into the wine. Gee, I guess an old dog can indeed learn a new trick.

    Now, will I remember this tomorrow is another question.
