The Catholic faith teaches that the priest consecrates the bread and wine into the ACTUAL body and blood of Jesus Christ. Catholics believe through the process of transubstantiation, Jesus Christ is LITERALLY present in the Eucharist, NOT a symbol. Protestants however, believe the bread and wine to be a symbol and not literally the body and blood of Christ.Having been brought up a catholic i was taught that's its a symbol by a priest who laughed at me as a child when i thought it was Jesus' real body. It seems he wasnt going by the catholic rules? Just thought id add this, anyway ive no interest in these religious stories anymore.

Actually some Protestants like Lutherans, believe in real presence of Jesus in the bread and wine. Reformed protestants deny that. Reformed protestants think they are just symbols.

Orthodox christians also believe that bread and wine becomes Jesus body and blood.

Jesus as a God has the power to transform bread and wine in his body and blood. He as a God also has the power to keep his body and blood in the form of bread and wine so that we are able to it them.
