Quote:Are you referring to the Cummunion service? Amongst Roman Catholics, the process is called Transubstantiation, where the Bread actually becomes the body of Jesus Christ.

Yes, this is the one. "becomes" is obviously a later layer as the catholics moved from physical to symbolic.

Incidentally, old versions of the Eastern Orthodox Lives of the Saints include a very relevant detail: a Saint (I *think* it was John Chrisostom, but may be wrong) observes a ritualistic drinking of blood.

Ahaaa! I got on.

The bible speaks of the bread of being the body of Christ, and the wine being his blood. Therefore, some congregations partake symbolically of the body and blood of Christ every Sunday, while some do on specific holiday. This is in observance of Christ's command to do in what is called the Last Supper in the gospels.

Let's see if this gets through and to the correct thread.
