Do the Bread and the Wine turn into the Body and Blood of Christ?
The Catholic doctrine that establishes such thing is known as "transubstantiation."
The Encyclopedic Dictionary Says...
The docttrine that, inthe Eucharist, the whole substance of the bread andn wine are changed into de body and blood of Christ."
The Roman Catholic Church says...
“The Catholic Church firmly believes and professes that in this Sacrament are contained not only the true body of Christ and all the constituents of a true body, such as bones and sinews but also Christ whole and entire.
"The Whole Eucharist contains both the Divinity and humanity whole and entire, consisting of the soul, all the parts of the body and the blood.”
Council of Trent, Part II, Chapter IV, Paragraphs 26, 33, 36.
“The Lord is immolated (killed) in the Sacrifice of the Mass which represents the sacrifice of the Cross and applies its salvific power at the moment when He becomes present in the bread and the wine through the words of consecration.
“The blood and wine has been change into the body and blood of Christ.
“Christ is present whole and entire in His physical ‘reality’ corporal present.”
Papal Encyclical, Mysterium Fifei, September 3, 1965.
“At the last supper, a paschal banquet, Christ is consumed (eaten).”
Vatican Council II, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Chapter II, No. 47, December 4, 1963.
“At the heart of the Eucharist (the mass) celebration, the bread and wine, by the word of Christ (the priest as Christ) and the invocation of the Holy Spirit (through the voice of the priest) becomes Christ’s body and blood.
“In the Mass, the most Sacred Sacrament of the Eucharist, the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the whole Christ, is truly, really, and substantially contained.”
Catechism of the Catholic Church, Part Three, Section Two, Article 3, Nos. 1333, 1374.
The Roman Catholic Bible (NABRE) says…”For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
The Protestant Bible (AKJV) says…”For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you. That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, ‘This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he comes.
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
The Roman Catholic and Protestant Bibles say…“Every priest stands daily at his ministry, offering frequently those same sacrifices that can never take away sins. But this one (Jesus Christ) offered one sacrifice for sins, (at the cross) and sat down forever at the right hand of God.”
Hebrews 10:11-12“When sins have once been forever forgiven and forgotten, there is no need to offer more sacrifices to get rid of them.” (No more Eucharist, No more masses.)
Before, during and after the mass… The wine looks like wine, smells like wine, tastes like wine, and if you drink enough of it, you can get drunk!
But the Roman Catholic Church says…
- It is not wine.
- It is blood.
- It is Jesus’ blood!
- If you refuse to believe it, you are anathema, accursed, devoted to evil and destruction!
The Council of Trent pronounced the anathema and stated that, “the Roman Catholic who refuses to believe it and to receive it is not a Roman Catholic.”
Do the Priests drink wine or blood in the Mass?
Do you believe…
…that the alleged “miracle" of the transubstantiation has ever happened?
…that in the Eucharist (the Mass) are contained the true body of Christ with all its components, such as: his flesh, His blood, his bones, His sinews, His tendons, His soul, and His Spirit?
…that the Bible teaches that a priest has the authority to make Christ descend from heaven to reappear in the wine and wafers?
…that Catholic believers, by eating Christ’s flesh, tendons, and bones, plus drinking His blood, become anthropophagi (cannibals)?
…that if Christ is truly eaten, He leaves the participant’s body when in his/her mouth He is swallowed, goes to his/her stomach, travels through the intestines and is finally dropped out?
…that Jesus can be reduced by man into a wafer?
What is the meaning of the Mass to these Priests?
“An amazing thing is that the Roman Catholic Church says that I have to make myself believe that I can convert a piece of bread into a God. It was devastating to discover that I had performed the most outrageous act of idolatry!”
Charles Chiniquy, converted Roman Catholic Priest.
“The greatest act of worship in the Roman Catholic Church is a daily comedy: the Mass of blasphemy!”
Mark Peñas, converted Roman Catholic Priest.
“One day I received the power to sacrifice Christ (to kill Him) over again and again on an altar at my whim and fancy. I was given the poser to convert the bread into His body and the wine into His blood, through the magic words of the consecration. In my hands was the very Creator of the Universe, the Eternal God! The mass is a creation of the Devil.”
Cipriano Valdez Jaimes, converted Roman Catholic Priest.
Do you believe…
…that if Jesus is truly eaten in whole through the wafer, Jesus is consumed millions of times a day when Masses are performed around the world?
…that if the sacrament of the Eucharist (the changing of the wine into the blood of Jesus and the wafer into the body of Jesus), is real, then would it be the most vital and miraculous event ever?
…that when Jesus said, “This is my body,” while holding a piece of bread He meant it literally or symbolically?
…that when in John 10:7,9 Jesus said, “I am the door,” He was a door? Would you take it literally or symbolically?
…that during the Mass the wine turns into the blood, making the Priest a vampire (a bloodsucking bat)?
…that during the Mass the wafer turns in to flesh, making you a cannibal (man-eater)?
…that when the wafer is placed in your mouth by the Priest, it tastes like bread or flesh?
…that if you answer “tastes like bread”, you are not Catholic at all and may no longer belong to the Roman Catholic Church?
…that up to this point, you are not sure “you are Catholic?
