    Well, Catholics are not required to believe in transubstantiation and certainly are not permitted to believe in consubstantiation.

    will you or anyone you know be partaking? If you're just going to watch bread and wine get passed in a circle with no one recieving the elements, then it is a fruitless waist of time. The "body and blood" were meant to be shared by all who believe, early Christian history substantiates this practice.

    And where did you get this gem from?

    And even if it was the exact date, it is no more significant than 2 or three people together at home any day of the week.

    I will be attending as an observer, those with a heavenly hope, that is, those who are
    party to the covenant arrangement instituted by Christ and who will reside with him in
    the heavens, as kings and priests will partake. I have a different hope, that is to be a
    subject of that heavenly Kingdom and hope to reside on a paradise earth. I rarely find
    attending the Kingdom hall a waste of time, in fact, i learned more in a few years there
    than in twenty five as a member of nominal Christianity. After the memorial service
    there shall be a special talk, entitled, 'Bible principles - can they help you cope with
    today's problems', which is the practical application of said principles and will be
    immensely helpful to a Christian.

    even when i was not a catholic i snuck into chapel and partook of the sacraments
    out of curiosity, it was nothing but a ritual. There was no meaning put into it, no
    explanation given as to what the emblems signified, it was absolutely deviod of
    anything other than a ritual and that my friend is the greatest irony of all.

    Its calculable from the Jewish month of Nisan, under the lunar calendar. It corresponds
    to the passover festival of the Jews, the exact day all those years ago when Christ
    held the lords evening meal, or last supper as its commonly known as. Its significant
    as its an annual celebration (disputed by others on the flimsiest of grounds), the only
    one instituted by the Christ.

    well I've never been one for 'new moons or Sabbaths' and all that rigmarole - it's why I dropped out of the system in the first place. Well that and being pressurised to sign a direct debit to buy the lazy pastor a new car.

    well, its not a festival, its a memorial celebration, instituted by Christ. Early Christians never had a clergy laity distinction.

    Is that sort of thing common in churches? No wonder you dropped out.

    But you are the one making a big deal of the date! You are turning it into a "festival" by making more of the date than the event. The breaking of bread is significant anywhere any time....

    i did not institute it did I? Christ did, and what is more, he held it on an annual
    occasion. Indeed, it was not until after the apostolic fathers died that it was changed
    to a weekly celebration. Its not simply breaking bread, Christ stated that it was
    symbolic. I do not believe that it should be done anywhere and any time, otherwise
    Christ would have said so, in fact, to do so would hardly constitute a memorial, unless
    of course you cannot remember day to day what you did yesterday. Also, Paul
    counsels against it becoming merely a mundane thing. Yes it is a big deal to us to
    remember the significance of Christ sacrifice, its a time for reflection, its not an
    ordinary thing, after all, is it?
