Does the Eucharist become body waste?

Hi Friends

I believe in the Divinity and Humanity of Christ in the Eucharist

Since its in the form of bread, Naturally, it will go outside of the human body as a form of body waste,

does this mean that the body and blood of our Lord becomes
body waste too?

Please shed some light


Dear marlo,

Jesus is present in the Eucharist under the appearances of bread and wine only. When the acids in the stomach change the accidents (appearances) of bread and wine and they change into something else, the divine presence leaves.
