[quote=Montie Claunch]O.K. Three Eucharistica questions for you.
1.With Transubstaition, The Euchrist becomes the Body and Blood of Jesus, Yet still looks, smells, and tastes like bread. I know that this is used as an objection to the Euchrist. And I know that there is a answer to it but, I can’t remeber what it is. What would you say if faced with this objection?
What is done with the Euchrist that is left over after the communion service? I can’t see us throwing it away.
Is the Eucharist Jesus for a limited time or is it Jesus forever?
Thank you and God bless.
#1- There are accidents and substance. The accidents remain after the consecration. This means that the Precious Blood looks like wine,tastes like wine, contains alcohol like wine. The Body of Christ looks and tastes like bread. However, through
transubstantiatio, the actually substance has changed. This means that the bread and wine has become the Body and Blood of Christ.
#2- The Eucharist is never to be thrown aways because it is Jesus in the real presence. Remaining hosts after a mass should be reposed in the tabernacle. If there is no tabernacle, for example maybe at a mass outside a church, the remaining hosts can be consumed by the priest.
#3- The Eucharist is always Jesus. The Eucharist never stops being Jesus after being consecrated. Once Jesus, always Jesus.
