The Eucharist is Real Food & Real Drink — Understood Through the Instrumentality and Language of the Body. When Jesus says his body is REAL food and his blood is REAL drink ( John 6:54-55 ), he means it literally. NOT symbolically. Eucharistic miracles have scientifically proven its Truth. St. John Paul II examines meaning of man’s body in light of Scripture. It would be accurate to add one word to the title of Saint John Paul’s theology. That word is instrumentality. The better title would be: The Theology of the Instrumentality of the Body for receiving and expressing grace. The Holy Spirit uses the body to express and receive His graces.
