Are Catholics Blood-Thirsty Cannibals? - How to Speak Catholic, Episode 0019
Welcome to "How to Speak Catholic," your podcasting source for the Joy of the Gospel through the Catholic Church. Our goal is to share the joy of being Catholic, whether you're Catholic, or just curious about what the Catholic Church teaches, we're here to help. This episode is the second of 2 talks from the Spirituality Day of the Rural North Central Deanery of the Archdiocese of Omaha. We touch on a little CS Lewis and take it one step further with a challenge: Is the Eucharist what the Church says it is (the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord, Jesus Christ)? And if not, then we're faced with only 2 other possibilities - 1) we Catholics are cannibals who believe in human sacrifice, or 2) we Catholics are a bunch of backwards, superstitious, uneducated, gullible, ignorant idolaters who worship a piece of bread, thinking it's got some type of magical powers. If you don't believe everything that the Church teaches about the Eucharist when you go up to receive communion, then you must fall into one of the other two categories - there are no two ways about it. The question, then, is which one are you?
