DMITRY CHERNIKOV SAID:
Just as with so many things in Catholicism we are led from the corporeal to the spiritual, from the sensible to the intelligible, from the particular to the universal. But in reaching these higher matters, the means to them, that is, the corporeal, the sensible, etc. are not illusions but are perfectly real.
The accidental properties of the communion elements are illusory rather than real since they don’t correspond to an underlying substance of bread and wine.
Now Christ as a whole is present in the bread and wine, namely, body, blood, soul, and divinity.
How is the body of Christ physically present in a wafer the size of a quarter? The body of Christ has physical dimensions. So does a wafer. How do you squeeze one into the other? Is the body of Christ like a life-size inflatable blow up doll?
The body and blood are means to delivering the divinity. The Eucharist is a tool left by Jesus to assist the faithful in the fight against the devil. When the priest raises the host, it's as if rays of white light stream from it. Each host (both bread and wine) after consecration contains a small piece of light of Jesus's divinity.
That’s very pretty metaphor. Unless you can (i) translate your picturesque metaphor into a literal proposition and then (ii) provide a supporting argument, it’s just a nonsensical assertion.
When the host is eaten, the bread and wine, being body and blood and soul which contain the divinity open up like petals in a flower and release the divinity that settles in the will.
Wow! That’s worthy of Goldie Hawn! All you need to complete the picture is a Day-Glo bikini and a garland of daisies.
(Having been made suitable for it by Jesus's own union of human soul of divinity), strengthening it and filling it with love for God, scaring away the devil.
Really? It doesn’t seem to have that effect on pedophile priests or the Kennedy clan.
Or so, at least, I was made to understand in a kind of revelation.
