And, you know what. I don't believe it when Protestants ask, "How does Jesus get from your intestines to your soul???" If they really wanted to know, they could find out pretty easily. I mean the thinking is not exactly a no-brainer, but we don't hide it either. The question has been asked more than once in the past couple of millennia.

Been there, done that...You might get a jolt if you drink some Jolt, but I never got a thing out of eating the wafer...And it didn't appear that anyone around me did either....

But whatever didn't happen, it was over in 20 minutes...Guess I needed to get in the back of the line so I could get another fix...I'd hate to think I got a 20 minute fix of Jesus and had to wait til the next Mass to get me some more...

You guys have to keep coming back, keep coming back to get some more...And your kids and entire family have to keep coming back to your church because that's where Jesus is...

He is reported to have said, τουτο εστιν το σομα μου. Yes, I know he probably spoke Aramaic, but the Bible being inspired and our faith being simple and all, we're not going to try to reconstruct the Aramaic. We'll accept what is given, an that is, simply, This is my body.

And He is also the door...And, He is the Way...And He is the Rock...And He is bread...And He is meat...

Jesus didn't leave instructions on how you guys are supposed to turn bread and wine into His body and blood...Maybe that should have been a clue...

And, as to simple faith and all that, it is no where required to understand the thinking realted to Eucharistic doctrine. It is enough to believe, to take Jesus at His word.

HaH...Go on with your religion blindfolded, eh??? Apparently that's what they operated on for years until Marty Luther took the blindfold off...No thanks...God didn't preserve His words so we could blindly follow some religion...

So simple faith means NOT trusting the words of Jesus as the Bible presents them?

Yeah. He didn't tell us how. This makes it interesting that a lot of sola Scriptura Protestants are so persuaded that we're doing it wrong, huh?

One of the things which makes defending the true Church so interesting is the minute we are done dealing with an attack about how we philosophize and are too sophisticated we have to wheel to deal with an attack on our trustingly blind approach to our religion.
