An Unbelievable Truth

Bernadette Roberts
"Augustine explains it this way – just as the ordinary bread we eat is transformed into our body, in similar fashion, when we eat the Bread of Life, we are transformed into Christ’s Body. It is not we who “consume” Christ, but Christ that consumes us – transforming and incorporating our human nature into Its own glorified human nature. 
"Distributing the Eucharist to others, St. Augustine is reported to have said, “Receive what you are to become”, a truth so tremendous who can believe it?"
The Real Christ, Chapter: Eucharist
