Bread of Life

 this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die. (john 6: 50)
The miracle of God’s physical presence to us at every Mass is the truest testament to Christ’s love for us and His desire for each of us to have a personal relationship with Him. Jesus Christ celebrated the first Mass with His disciples at the Last Supper, the night before He died. He commanded His disciples, “Do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). The celebration of the Mass then became the main form of worship in the early Church, as a reenactment of the Last Supper, as Christ had commanded. Each and every Mass since commemorates Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross through the Holy Eucharist. Because the Mass “re-presents” (makes present) the sacrifice on Calvary, Catholics all around the world join together to be made present in Christ’s timeless sacrifice for our sins. There is something fascinating about continuing to celebrate the same Mass—instituted by Christ and practiced by the early Church—with the whole community of Catholics around the world…and in heaven.


Why does the Catholic Church believe Christ is really present in the Eucharist?
The Catholic doctrine of the Real Presence is the belief that Jesus Christ is literally, not symbolically, present in the Holy Eucharist—body, blood, soul and divinity. Catholics believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist because Jesus tells us this is true in the Bible:

“I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ So Jesus said to them,

"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him” - John 6:48-56
Furthermore, the early Church Fathers either imply or directly state that the bread and wine offered in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper is really the body and blood of Jesus Christ. In other words, the doctrine of the Real Presence that Catholics believe today was believed by the earliest Christians 2,000 years ago!

This miracle of God’s physical presence to us at every Mass is the truest testament to Christ’s love for us and His desire for each of us to have a personal relationship with Him.

Why do Non-Non-Catholic Christians Attack Jesus?

And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Luke 23:34

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9

In Matthew 16:18 Jesus said, "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

Now Jesus did say Church and not churches didn't He? So He founded a single Church and none other, right? And what about the gates of hell not prevailing against it? That means His Church will last to the end of the world, doesn't it?
Matthew 28:19-20, "Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."

Hmmm, this is a second time that Jesus said His Church would last forever and He would be with it every day in every century until the end of time. He said that around 2000 years ago so it is obvious that His ONE and ONLY Church is still with us today. Remember, that was His promise.

Many Protestants have told me that the Catholic Church fell into apostasy at some unknown time after the last Apostle died and of course they can never tell me when, or provide me with a genuine historical document of proof. So what they really said to me is that Jesus was a liar for His promises of His perpetual Church.

1John 5:10, "He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. He who does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne to his Son."

Jesus would never lie to us, He couldn't. Remember, He IS God and God cannot lie. However protestants can. Just start counting their lies in this page.

Please note that when I use the word 'protestant' from this point on, I refer to all who call themselves 'Christian' but are not in the one Church that Jesus Christ founded in about 29-30 A.D..

Hebrews 6:18, "That by two immutable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have the strongest comfort, we who have fled for refuge to hold fast the hope set before us." This is more biblical proof that Jesus Christ could not lie.

Acts 5:38-39, "And now, therefore, I say to you: Refrain from these men and let them alone. FOR IF THIS COUNCIL OR THIS WORK BE OF MEN, IT WILL COME TO NAUGHT: BUT IF IT BE OF GOD, YOU CANNOT OVERTHROW IT, LEST PERHAPS YOU BE FOUND EVEN TO FIGHT AGAINST GOD. And they consented to him."

WOW! Those two verses fit protestantism to a 'T'. They have been trying to overthrow the Catholic Church for almost 500 years, from 1520 when Martin Luther broke from the Catholic Church and formed the first protestant denomination, and right to this day.

Oh and by the way read all you can about Luther and you will find in 1520 and many years before and after that time, the Catholic Church was mentioned by name many times. So it was still here in Luthers time almost 1500 years after it was founded by Jesus Christ.

The Body of Christ:

Gee whiz look at these verses:

Ephesians 1:22-23 "and he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, WHICH IS HIS BODY, the fullness of him who fills all in all."

So the Church that Jesus Christ founded that will last forever is really and truly His Body. Do Protestants believe those verses? Apparently not since they are always attacking His body, His one and only Catholic Church.

Did you ever think of how many people who attack the Body of Christ will be taken to Heaven? Read on for much more that proves that it is the Catholic Church that is the Body of Christ and NONE OTHER.


John 4:7-9, "There came a woman of Samar'ia to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink." For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samar'ia? For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans."

Jesus was a Jew, right?

Judaism had only one temple for all and it was located in Jerusalem, so many Jews had to travel long distances to worship there.

Long distances in those days could be 70 miles or more, a hardship for the Jews but they did it. Things changed drastically for that situation since Jesus established a world wide 'universal' Church.

The Universal Church:

Acts 1:7-8, He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem (Local) and in all Judea and Sama'ria (Expanding out) and to the end of the earth (World Wide, 'Universal')."

There you have it. His Church is not confined to one city where the people had to go long distances to worship. Instead He is bringing His Church to the people all over the whole world in time, making it 'Universal'.

Acts 9:31, "So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Sama'ria had peace and was built up; and walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit it was multiplied."

So His Church, now being built up as it is spreading out, had a second person of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit comforting it. Did you notice in the first three words of that verse it says 'So THE church', singular?

Take a look at Revelation chapters 2 and 3. All of those churches listed are examples of the expansion made by the Apostles and their followers of the one Church that Jesus Christ founded. They had gone long distances establishing more Churches farther away towards becoming 'Universal'.

THOSE CHURCHES ARE NOT PROTESTANT CHURCHES AS PROTESTANTS WOULD LIKE US TO BELIEVE. The word protest-ant did not even come into being until 1529, about 1500 years after the Catholic Church was founded.
