You must pray. The way will open. God cares and His plans unfold. Just love and wait. Love is the Key. No door is too difficult for it to open. What cause have you to fear? Has He not cared for and protected you? Hope on. Hope gladly. Hope with certainty. Be calm, calm in My Power. Never neglect these times, pray and read your Bible and train and discipline yourself. That is your work - Mine to use you. But My Instruments must be sharp and ready. Then I use them. Discipline and perfect yourselves at all costs. Do this for soon every fleeting thought will be answered, every wish gratified, every deed used. It is a fearful Power, a mighty Power. Oh! be careful that you ask nothing amiss - nothing that is not according to My Spirit. All thoughts harmful must be turned out. Miracle-working power can become witchery in wrong hands. See how necessary I have made the purity and goodness of your own lives to you. That is why. Soon, very soon, you shall ask and at once it will come. Welcome the training. Without it I dare not give you this Power. It would do harm. Do not worry about others’ lives. That will all come right. You must perfect yourselves first in My Strength.
The Power of God’s Promise.
"His divine power has bestowed on us everything that makes for life and devotion, through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and power. Through these, He has bestowed on us the precious and very great promises, so that through them you may come to share in the divine nature, after escaping from the corruption that is in the world because of evil desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with devotion, devotion with mutual affection, mutual affection with love. If these are yours and increase in abundance, they will keep you from being idle or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Anyone who lacks them is blind and shortsighted, forgetful of the cleansing of his past sins. Therefore, brothers, be all the more eager to make your call and election firm, for, in doing so, you will never stumble. For, in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ will be richly provided for you. ' ~ 2 Peter 1:3-11

Okay, Gary. What does this mean?
When I hear you say this, and I remember when I tell you that the transubstantiation does not produce something that can be tested, and thereby falsified, you say:
"who am I to believe, you or a Cardinal!!!! aHH!!! aH!!!"
SO ARE YOU SAYING THAT BECAUSE YOU FOUND AN OBSCURE VIDEO THAT NOW YOU ARE INSISTING THAT TRUNSUBSTANTIATION IS SUPPOSED TO PRODUCE TESTABLE FLESH????!!!
IS THIS WHAT YOU ARE SAYING?

These are only a few Catholic beliefs, but they show how contradictory and confusing the religion is. If Jesus is god and has a body made of bread with wine coursing through its veins, how can he be omnipresent? How can Jesus be god when he is man, whole and entire? How can he be god when the Father is god, whole and entire? How can Jesus not be the Father when they are both god, whole and entire?

The church teaches the change is real.
Cardinal Pell said the change is real.
Neither says you can see it.
So please, help me out. Where is the problem?

Ah, but the two natures are distinct, one did not absorb the other.
Jesus, the man...
At the time Genesis was written the tribes of Israel were committed
monotheists rejecting all other gods, thus it is referring to God. I am
just pointing out the plural usage.

Like I used to tell my children....if they lost their arms, they'd still
be who they are. If they lost their legs, the same. It's not their
flesh that makes them who they are but the spirit within them.

OK, LOL! No mistaking me for a theologian or a scientist, huh?
What was the empowerment, though, that took place in the lives of the
Apostles at Pentecost when they received the Holy Spirit?

We make no apology to Gary or anyone over it.
Gary, you can't even keep
the definitions of words straight and you twist the doctrine into shapes
no Catholic recognizes.
As I said, the only thing Gary has said, in 30
pages of ranting.....is that he is not Catholic. Yup, that's about it

Argy, if you were to have a personal encounter with Jesus and He handed
you bread and wine and told you to eat and drink it in remembrance of
Him and that it was His Flesh and Blood, do you really think you're
going to argue with Him about it?
You will either simply accept it as the Apostles did or you'll walk away as some others did.
All the Saints in the Church accepted it as did the Apostles and were
blessed for doing so. Doubt they fully understood it but just obeyed.
It's what we call FAITH!
