  1. I believe the confusing aspects of 'transubstantiation' for many lie in the failure to grasp the understanding of what is meant when it is said that Christ is present physically in the consecrated host. As well as what is meant 'externally and internally.' We hear that God and man is present substantially under the auspices of bread and wine, but it takes a bit more contemplation and reflection than simply finding the definition of those terms to better grasp what is really being propagated. For example ' externally and internally' here do not refer to the external and internal properties of the bread and wine. The external and internal properties of the bread and wine remain and Christ is present in them for only as long as the physical attributes ( Aristotle called them accidents) remain because it is clearly stated that He is present under the appearance of those. He is present substantially means that he cannot be present accidently in any way. There is never a time anywhere in nature where human blood is a property of bread or wine.
    Only in transubstantiation can the substance of something be consumed by consuming the physical attributes of another.
    There is no possible way to eat the substance of a slice of bread without eating its physical properties ( taste, colour, texture, etc...) The same holds true for carnivores, vegetarians and cannibals.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
