:::Thanks for the longer reply.
:::"The Holy Eucharist defies analysis and explanation." Would it be wrong to say either (1) that the Real Presence resides in the elements after the Epiklesis; or (2) that the elements are literally changed into the physical, corporeal body and blood of Christ?
:::I hope this isn't too hair-splitting. It seems that the emphasis is in the act of the Eucharist, but not on the elements, yet I hope to be accurate in my mortal understanding. [[User:Willibald|Willibald]] 18:43, February 5, 2007 (PST)
