Hello! I recently came across the following claim on Alpha and Omega Ministries. It Claims the following is a quote from Pope Gelasius I denying Transubstantiation.
“The sacrament of the body and blood of Christ, which we receive, is a divine thing, because by it we are made partakers of the divine-nature. Yet the substance or nature of the bread and wine does not cease. And assuredly the image and the similitude of the body and blood of Christ are celebrated in the performance of the mysteries.” Gelasius, bishop of Rome, in Jacques Paul Migne, Patrologiae Latinae, Tractatus de duabis naturis Adversus Eutychen et Nestorium 14."
I find this hard to believe, especially given the fact that they seem to be quoting from a secondary source and do not give the name of the original document it is contained in. Any idea where they got this and how to refute it?
