[quote=qmvsimp ---- see Poss #1 and #2]First of all, it is also found in the Orthodox Churches. If you can’t find a Catholic Church to go to, you can go to an Orthodox Church and receive communion. They still have a valid priesthood.
Secondly, I didn’t know that Baptist’s believed in the Real Presence. I thought they all thought it was symbolism.
I think the issue here is not which church has the real presense but which church has a valid priesthood, since only priests can consecrate the bread and wine.
Go the the main website:
Browse around or search on priesthood.
What Qvsim is saying is CONSISTENT WITH (1) MIRACLES OF THE HOLY EUCHARISTS AND (2) FATIMA
In the Eastern Orthodox subforum, I asked the Eastern Orthodox if they have ever had any Miracles of the Holy Eucharist in their church AFTER LANCIANO AND AFTER THEIR SCHISM WITH ROME.
I was expecting them to say no. Surprisingly, Fr._________, (I forgot his name) but he is the only one there with the name Fr. __________. He told me a story where the CONSECRATED WINE TURNED INTO BLOOD. In their case however, they have orders not to drink or eat it because they suspect that it is a trick of the devil, — ALL BECAUSE A ROMANIAN ORTHODOX HERMIT NUN TOLD AN ORTHODOX PRIEST WHO VISITED HER THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES NOT DESCEND ON THEIR ORTHODOX CONSECRATION BECAUSE THE ORTHODOX CHANGED THE CALENDAR.
I said to him, the Eastern Orthodox are right not to receive It into their body, NOT BECAUSE IT IS NOT THE BLOOD OR BODY OF CHRIST, BUT BECAUSE THEY DOUBT AND DO NOT BELIEVE THAT IT IS THE BODY OR BLOOD OF CHRIST. St, Paul warns that he who eats the Body or drinks the Blood WITHOUT RECOGNIZING THAT IT IS THE BODY AND BLOOD OF THE LORD BRINGS --------------- UPON HIMSELF (I forgot the words)
So as far as I know, IT IS ONLY IN THE CATHOLIC AND IN THE EASTERN ORTHODOX CHURCHES THAT THERE ARE MIRACLES OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST.
Consistent with this is the fact that THE FALL OF THE USSR DID NOT OCCUR WHEN ALL THE CATHOLIC BISHOPS IN UNION WITH THE ROMAN PONTIFF CONSECRATED RUSSIA TO THE IMMACULATE HEART ------- BUT ONLY OCCURED AFTER ALL OF THE BISHOPS OF THE EASTERN ORTHODOX CHURCH TOGETHER WITH ALL OF THE CATHOLIC BISHOPS AND THE ROMAN PONTIFF ALL TOGETHER CONSECRATED THE USSR TO THE IMMACULATE HEART. ( For more exactness as to which Orthodox bishops these were, CONTACT FR. ROBERT FOX of EWTN because it was from him that I heard this on EWTN.)
