Re: Transsubstantiation of Elements.
- Dear Mr.Joseph Varghese,
We don't believe in Transubstantiation or Consubstantiation. The faith of the Catholic church,the substance is changed after the invocation. But in our church believes that the substance do not change, but remain as bread and wine itself.(At the same time the body and blood of Jesus Christ).Infact,it is a mystery which the human cannot see or understand through their senses.
If you go through Kanyamparambil Achan's Sabhacharithram, you will find the description about Transubstantiation.
Rev Dn Joshy C Abraham also explained with regards to the same subject few months back.
Regards in HIS Name.
