    But the Romish Antichrist, to deface this great benefit of Christ, hath taught that his sacrifice upon the cross is not sufficient hereunto, without another sacrifice devised by him … to supply Christ’s imperfection. … O heinous blasphemy and most detestable injury against Christ! O wicked abomination in the temple of God! O pride intolerable of Antichrist, and most manifest token of the son of perdition, extolling himself above God, and with Lucifer exalting his seat and power above the throne of God! For he that taketh upon him to supply that thing, which he pretendeth to be unperfect in Christ, must needs make himself above Christ, and so very Antichrist.

    Thomas Cranmer, A Defence of the True and Catholic Doctrine of the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Our Saviour Christ (1550; London, 1907), xxii-xxiii.

    I guess Jesus and St. Paul were wrong all along.

    This is a Reformed Calvinistic forum but, with respect, I'll clear up the misunderstanding you may have...real presence doesn't mean physically present. Christ offered a sacrifice for sin once. Hebrews 10

    Yours in the Lord,
