I don’t think a lot of them do, because they’re poorly instructed, alas. Maybe the Pope should take advantage of this moment to try to encourage better catechesis.

I doubt that those Catholics are poorly instructed...Your Eucharist is after all, the mainstay of your religion...They know what they are taught, they just don't believe it...

If you tell me you are going to change an orange into a bicycle and it still looks, feels and tastes like an orange after you changed it, you'll never convince me a change took place...

And I'll bet a vast majority of Catholics who claim the bread turns into flesh don't believe it either...

And to go further, I would be surprised if there are any priests who actually believe it...

There are also a lot of people over the centuries and today who have not believed and do not believe that God gave Himself a human nature as Jesus.    They say that if He looked like a mere human being, sounded like a mere human being, and to all human senses, appeared to be just a mere human being, then of course He had to have only been a mere human being.

They were (and are) wrong.
