3. ________ I profess likewise that true God is offered in the Mass, a proper and propiatory sacrifice for the living and the dead, and that in the most Holy Eucharist there are truly, really and substantially the body and the blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that a conversion is made of the whole substance of wine into his blood, which conversion the Catholic Church calls transubstantiation.

Some saints, of course, can take care of any emergence-especially the Virgin Mary, Holy Mother of Christ, to whom the common man now attributes almost more power than her Son...
