In light of the new translations that are coming to the USA this year, an interesting thought came to me. One change in the Nicene Creed will be that we say "consubstantial with the Father..." instead of "one in being with the Father....
Think about that: Jesus is the same substance as the Father. Now let's examine our beliefs about the Eucharist. Transubstantiation means that the bread and wine actually change substance to become Jesus.
Now put those two paragraphs together. Since the Eucharist is the substance of Jesus, and Jesus is the same substance as the Father, couldn't it be said that Holy Communion is actually the substance of the Father (in addition to the Son)?
Of course, the Trinity cannot be separated, so wherever Jesus is, the Father and Spirt are too. But it sounds strange to say that the Eucharist is the Father, doesn't it?
