What does it mean when we say that Christ is present in the Eucharist? It is a mystery - we believe what Jesus told us, "take and eat, this is my body, take and drink, this is my blood...." the term that we use to describe this mystery is transubstantiation.

Its a philosophical term coined by St. Thomas Aquinas to help us logically understand this mysterious teaching of Jesus. Transubstantiation means the change of the whole substance of bread into the substance of the Body of Christ and of the whole substance of wine into the substance of his Blood. This change is brought about in the eucharistic prayer through the efficacy of the word of Christ and by the action of the Holy Spirit. However, the outward characteristics of bread and wine remain unaltered.
