Using the Correct terms for the Eucharist
edit_button

I found this good article today that describes some common mistakes that anyone can make. These errors include believing that after Consecration the bread and wine exist along with Christ; this is called Consubstantiation, which is what Lutherans believe, but is was condemned at the Thirteenth Session of the Council of Trent. We, as Catholics, believe in Transubstantiation, where the bread and wine are no longer bread and wine but the Body and Blood of Christ (CCC 1376). The only thing remaining is the accidents, which is just the appearance of bread and wine.

"Of course, Jesus has not become bread and wine for us (cf. IV.). Instead, the bread and wine have become Jesus for us." (SOURCE)
