    This is so powerful! It is only now that I have truly understood how the Holy Host becomes transformed into the Body of Christ. I go to mass daily and have always believed that it is truly His Body because of faith but now I also know why. Thank you, Bishop Baron!

    The talk is most appreciated. The difference between descriptive and transformative speech clarifies the truth of the Eucharist.

    If my parish priest betrays my trust by spreading misinformation about me so that I can no longer receive Holy Communion from him without feeling extreme anger is it wrong to attend mass and not receive the sacrament.

    HAVE A QUESTION/Please explain the purpose of the handshake of peace. One time I got into a dispute with the celebrant/pastor who instructed his alter servers NOT to share the handshake with closeby people at mass BECAUSE IT SLOWED HIM DOWN, from moving on to the AGNUS DEI. Why do some celebrants of mass treat it like a track meet/TO BE FINISHED IN THE SHORTEST TIME?
