"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.

There's a huge difference...When Jesus healed the blind guy, the blind guy could actually see afterward...

And when a lame person was told to get up and walk, he didn't crawl away while Jesus told the crowd, 'look, he's healed'...He actually walked...And everyone saw it...

There's nothing, nada, zilch, zero evidence or hint in the scriptures where Jesus said he is going to turn bread into his flesh, nor is there any hint that he did...And that's because he didn't...

If Jesus would have turned bread into flesh, it would have been flesh, not bread...
