The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the central and most sacred act of worship for the Roman Catholic. The Catholic Catechism teaches that during the Mass, the priest actually changes the wafer and wine presented on the altar into the physical body, blood, and divinity of Jesus Christ. This new reincarnated Christ is referred to as the Eucharist. This process is called transubstantiation.

This Eucharist, now said to be the actual physical presence of Jesus, is required to be given the same worship and adoration due God. The Eucharist is then broken and offered by the priest as a bloodless sacrifice for the sins of the living and the dead. After this offering for sins, the Eucharist is then offered for consumption to Catholics presently in good standing with Catholic Church teachings and sacraments. This is also referred to as heavenly food, which helps one earn eternal life.

Now I ask you, dear reader, does this ring true in your heart? Do you believe that Jesus Christ is actually transformed into the physical appearance of bread and wine? Can you actually worship this bread-god? Do you actually believe that this bread made by human hands can be sacrificed for your sins and that you are granted a pardon from God by this offering? Do you believe that by eating this heavenly food you can obtain eternal life? I ask you to read what the Catechism of the Catholic Churches says in light of the Holy Bible.
