Cardinal Arinze: What Happens at the Words of Consecration

What did we learn from Cardinal Arinze?

  • Since Jesus is God, He has the power to do anything. So, He turns bread and wine into His actual Body and Blood, even though His Body and Blood still retain all the appearances of bread and wine.

Remember in the Bible that Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding feast of Cana. Can you think of any other amazing miracles He did?

  • He walked on water.
  • He raised people from the dead.
  • He multiplied the loaves and fishes.
