Defending the Eucharist: Questions I Answered on Catholic Answers Live

by Steve Ray on June 14, 2017

This month my topic on Catholic Answers Live was “Defending the Eucharist.” You can listen here.

Questions I Answered:

1. What did you believe about the Eucharist before you became Catholic?

2. What helped you understand the fullness of the teaching and why did you change?

3. The Bible also says Jesus is door, the gate, etc. Isn’t “this is my Body” just another example of symbolic language?

4. What is the history of Eucharistic adoration? When did it start?

5. How can I explain to Lutherans why their Eucharist isn’t the true body and blood of Christ in their churches?

6. At the consecration, the priest says, “This is My Body” and “This is My Blood” but at communion, I know that each particle of the Eucharist contains the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ, so when is the Body and Blood rejoined?

7. Why is it still valid if you chose to eat only the bread and not to drink the wine?

8. How can I explain to non-Catholics that the Eucharist isn’t just bread and wine but the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ?

9. Why is it so hard for some people to believe it when Jesus says it as clear as can be, “This is My Body”?

 10. What is your opinion on James White’s YouTube video “John 6 for Roman Catholics”?

11. What happens when a non-Catholic or someone who is not in the state of Grace receives the Eucharist? Is it still the Body, Blood, Soul, Divinity of Christ?
