Melt in your mouth Jesus......

Q: Does a breastfeeding baby receive the Eucharist?

I was wondering if my daughter, in turn, receives communion when I do after I breastfeed her. If this is the case, isn't it a sin to administer/take the Eucharist when a person doesn't fully understand what it is? or before they are baptized?

Hi,

Your baby does not receive the Eucharist when you breast-feed her after receiving Holy Communion. She consumes her mother’s milk. Once the Eucharist is digested in the stomach it ceases to be the body and blood of Jesus. When the appearance of bread and wine no longer exists, neither does the Real Presence.

But it would be no sin if your infant did receive the Eucharist. Some of the Eastern Catholic Churches do give the Eucharist to infants, after they are baptized, of course.


Now ya got him....gulp....now you don't.

See as long as it looks like bread and wine it's not bread and wine it's the Jewish zombie but as soon as it ain't then it's not.......got that!
Should I have put this in the humor section?

It's all in the "essence" of the fully-formed bread you see. Once it's been broken up into small little pieces it loses the "spiritual essence" that is christ's body. :wink:


...wait a minute.... I thought it wasn't a physical thing!? :o Hmm... :? What the..!? I've been living a lie!

This is like discovering Supermans' Achilles heel: They tried whipping him, they tried torture, then they tried a barbed wire head band....still he lived. Then they tried nailing him to two planks...still he lived...then they stabbed him with a spear....but he rose again.........little did they know all they needed was stomach acid!

This kind of sums up how ridiculous the whole thing is.

You could write a comedy script cutting and pasting from serious catholic web sites and not have to change a word.

It's been this ridiculous for about 1700 years. They've had a lot of practice.... :lol:
