Mark 14:22-25 : 

Mark 14:22-25 The Institution of the Last Supper

Slide 2: 

22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” 23 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. 25 Truly, I say to you, I shall not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

Transubstantiation : 

Transubstantiation

The Change : 

The Change Transubstantiation is the educational term used to point out the unique change of the entire bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ at the Holy Mass. The term transubstantiation tells us that through the consecration of the bread and the wine there occurs a change of the entire bread into the Body of Christ, and wine into the Blood of Christ – even though the appearances or species of bread and wine appear unchanged.

Transubstantiation is NOT Transformation : 

Transubstantiation is NOT Transformation Transformation is when a substance stays the same but its appearance changes. Meat from an animal enters a grinder as chunks of meat and comes out of the grinder as the same meat but it has a different look. The chunks of meat were transformed from chunks into a smoother texture.

Slide 6: 

Transubstantiation means that the appearance of the bread and wine stay the same but their substance is changed. In the meat example, the meat changed in appearance only because nothing was added to or subtracted from it. The priest starts with bread and wine and through his apostolic ordination and words of consecration the bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus.

Our Humanity : 

Our Humanity In our humanity, we typically use our physical senses to evaluate, and to judge. Instead of using our physical senses to evaluate theological events, we need to use our theological senses of faith, hope and charity. The more the scientific community discovers about our universe, the more clearly God’s handiwork is seen.

From the Gospel of John 6:51-56 : 

From the Gospel of John 6:51-56 51I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” 52 The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us (his) flesh to eat?” 53Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.

The Consecration : 

The Consecration Wouldn’t it be silly to tell your followers “unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood you do not have life within you.” unless you could provide them with a means to follow your command? How can we eat His flesh and drink His blood? Jesus gave to his Church the ability to re-establish his body and blood on earth through his Priestly representative at the consecration of the Mass.

Question : 

Question If you were at the first Passover in Egypt and slaughtered the lamb for the Passover meal, then put the blood on a hyssop branch and put it on the doorposts and lintel, was that enough to save your first born child?

NO! : 

NO! In order to complete the covenant with God you had to eat the lamb. You had to eat the flesh of the lamb. 51I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” (Jn. 6:51).

Jesus Commands : 

Jesus Commands Luke 22:19 Then he took the bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me.” 20 And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you. Notice Jesus says, “This is my body,” he didn’t say this is like my body. “This cup is the new covenant in my blood,” He didn’t say this is like my blood.

Transubstantiation : 

Transubstantiation Jesus has now revealed to the Apostles, the priests whom he had ordained, the first bishops, how to take ordinary bread and wine and convert them into the real body and blood of our Lord. Remember our question wouldn’t it be silly to command your followers to eat your flesh and drink your blood without showing them how? Jesus showed them how at the last supper. He has shown us how, through the power of transubstantiation, He becomes present in the bread and wine, so that we can receive our Lord into our bodies and be united with Him.
