YES, it's theReal Thing!
We celebrate Christ’s passion, death and resurrection at every Mass. Jesus said “Do this in memory of me.” It is very important that your child understands that during the consecration of the bread and wine, through the words of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit a change of the whole substance occurs and the bread and wine become the ACTUAL Body and Blood or our Lord Jesus Christ. The bread and wine are no longer just bread and wine it is “Jesus”, the Eucharist, the center of our Faith!
