Daily Catholic Quiz – Real Presence

Catholics profess belief in the True Presence of Jesus in The Blessed Sacrament. We call the change that takes place during Holy Mass, Transubstantiation. The Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist, received at Holy Communion is (choose one):

  1. bread and wine which symbolizes the spirit and teachings of Jesus by which your reception expresses your attachment to His Person and Words
  2. bread and wine in which Jesus is truly present
  3. bread and wine which becomes the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Lord Jesus when you receive it and because of your faith
  4. the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ under the appearances of bread and wine
  5. none of the above

Please post your answer in the comments below or on the ICL Facebook page. A new question will appear in the Daily Catholic Quiz at 12 Noon (U.S. Eastern Time) each Monday through Friday.

  1. #3. Naturally! The bread and wine no longer remain, only the body, blood soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ. More specifically it is his actual glorified body whole and entire, the same body which was crucified but in a glorified state unlike normal human flesh and blood, along with the His inseparable soul and divinity. Only the accidents of the Bread remain, and the accidents of the wine, which to our senses cause the Eucharist to appear as ordinary bread and wine.

  2. The answer is #4. Thanks to all who responded here and on facebook.

    “letsbecatholic” – you said #3 but you described #4. #3 is incorrect because the change (transubstantiation) does not depend on your faith or your receiving the sacrament.
