  1. Real presence of Jesus Christ in the Communion

    In the Communion, and under the apperance of species- bread and wine-, the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus were hidden.

   Jesus instituted the Communion on Maundy Thursday, during the Last Supper. He said: “Take, eat; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” (Matthew 26, 27-28)

   Jesus started to be in the Communion at the moment of the consagration during the Mass. The host is like wheat bread before consagration, and started to be present in the Eucharist at the moment of the consacration. The host is wheat bread before consacration, and becomes onto the body of Jesus inmediately after it. In the same way, the chalice is full of wine with some drops of water after the consacration, and before it is the Blood of Jesus Christ.

   Also, our Lord is complete in each and every part of the holy species.

   The sacrifice of the New Law of Jesus Christ is the sacrifice of the cross, renewed in the Holy Mass.
