That Bread Which You See On The Altar Is The Body Of Christ

That bread which you see on the the body of Christ. That chalice, or rather, what is in that chalice, having been sanctified by the word of God, is the blood of Christ...What you see is the bread and the chalice; that is what your own eyes report to you. But what your faith obliges you to accept is that the bread is the body of Christ and the chalice is the blood of Christ. - Saint Augustine A.D. 411
