He’s absolutely right! People have to remember this every time they go to Communion.

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 agree, Livius, that most have been poorly instructed, but past a certain point, they have a responsibility to seek the truth. I submit this begins after they learn to read.

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...
