WITHOUT THE BODY AND BLOOD OF JESUS SATAN SIFTS CHRISTIANS LIKE WHEAT

For 1500 years those who called themselves Christians understood that Jesus did not abandon man in his quest for eternal life. Rather Jesus left His Church to guide and direct man, and left His Body and Blood as sustenance. But with the abandonment of the Church came the abandonment of the Eucharist. Without the Church and the Sacraments, Satan sifts modern day Christians like wheat making them one with the world.

According to the late Fr John Hardon S.J., only those who would profess the following are Christian--"No one else is":

"I believe in my heart and openly profess that the bread and wine placed upon the altar are, by the mystery of the sacred prayer and the words of the Redeemer, substantially changed into the true and life-giving flesh and blood of Jesus Christ our Lord, and that after the consecration, there is present the true body of Christ which was born of the Virgin and offered up for the salvation of the world, hung on the cross and now sits at the right hand of the Father, and that there is present the true blood of Christ which flowed from his side. They are present not only by means of a sign and of the efficacy of the Sacrament, but also in the very reality and truth of their nature and substance." Composed by St Gregory VII for the profession of the heretic Berengarius in 1079.

Fr Hardon recommended that the above be memorized along with the following by all:

"Surely the word of Christ which could make out of nothing that which did not exist, can change things already in existence into what they were not. For it is no less extraordinary to give things new natures than to change their natures." St Ambrose, Bishop of Milan.
