    do this in memory of him..... bread and wine cannabalism??...
    he gave his life, tho certain faiths think it turns into the actual flesh and blood within your body, it does not, but it is a symbol of the faith by which we do to remember and reafirm our faith

    It is not cannibalism. Catholics do not believe there is any physical change in the species (the bread and wine.) There is a change in substance (what they are) but not in accident (their physical properties in space and time.) So they do not believe that they are consuming flesh and blood as a cannibalist does. Nonetheless, Catholics do believe that Christ is present in the species just not physically.

    No. Catholics believe that Jesus is totally present, in flesh, blood, soul and divinity -- but in a spiritual and substantial way rather than physically. The Church does take the words literally but this does not make communion tantamount to cannibalism.

    This is in no way a reflection on you or your beliefs although clearly there is an attempt to superimpose exegesis upon scripture when the text is ambiguous and the language may be exploited.

    Jesus is interpreting himself as the new manna which will sustain the Israelites. What's the point?
