Great discussion and I really appreciate your replies! After reading them and sleeping on it all, I see what I think may be more elegance then I originally perceived.
The accidents of the bread and wine are somehow suspended and this is supernatural as several of you replied. This is not unlike the soul being separated from the body upon death (which you would think impossible by the very definition of the human soul). Also, I’ve heard that when transubstantiation occurs a sort of sacrifice occurs in that the bread and wine no longer exist. But perhaps the separation of the accidents from the previous substance is also an analogy of death. When I recently read that there is no destruction of anything upon transubstantiation, I looked for more and believe I seem more now. It seems in the bread and wine there is another aspect of separation of form and matter (like body and soul) than I knew about (i.e. the separation of the accidents from the bread and wine).
Very beautiful indeed! And by God’s word and will he brings about this sort of death reversing the will of Man with Original sin which brought upon human death and real destruction. In a sense too, there is a lack of will in that first death through the cowardice of sin. It seems like a sort of “Un”-will with God’s answer which was a perfect willing partly seen in transubstantiation. A perfect Yes to the no which was man’s break from God.
I may be getting ahead of myself here: by sin we were cut off from the life-giving spiritual sustenance meant to come from our Mother Eve as with all mothers who teach and give example to their children. With Mary, this is restored and even more so through the Eucharist. Not only is teaching and example given but we are provided from Mary’s “Yes” the ACTUAL food of the Body and Blood of Christ. This is another way of seeing the “happy fault” which by God’s mercy we are given what seems to me to be infinitely more. From the original beatitude (a unity between God and Man) to a communion in body and spirit in Holy Communion. And this is perfectly creative it seems to me as opposed to the imperfect PRO-creative element within man. My being only has some derivation there, yet with Holy Communion I am made anew in direct contact with God (with Eve, my contact is indirect).
