The Roman Catholic Church through history approached her faith life with the clarification of language. That is, she translated the essentials of revealed faith into the vocabulary of living language.

To the revealed Word that there is “Father, Son and Holy Spirit” the Church labeled the belief “Trinity”.

To the revealed Word that the "Son of God became man" the Church labeled the belief “Incarnation”.

To the revealed Word that the “blood of Christ spilled on Calvary saved us” the Church labeled the belief “Redemption”.

In 1215, the Fourth Lateran Council consecrated the word “transubstantiation” as expressing correctly the Christian doctrine of Christ’s real presence by conversion of the substance of bread into the substance of Christ’s body.

Transubstantiation reflects Roman Catholic faith in the literalness of the words of the Bible.

Jesus (omnipotent God) said: “This is my body; this is my blood.” Again Jesus said, “I am the bread of life;” “My body is real food; my blood real drink;” “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood…” etc.

Catholics take Jesus at His word: the bread is his body; the wine is his blood.
