Please Stop Reinventing The Wheel: An Invitation To Peter Leithart

Nov 9th, 2014 | By | Category: Blog Posts

The contributors here at Called To Communion have previously replied to Peter Leithart. His recent “Staying Put” essentially repeats everything he said in “Too catholic to be Catholic,” so I shall not belabor the points made in our response to that post.1 See also “Peter Leithart’s “The Tragedy of Conversion” to Catholicism or Orthodoxy.” [↩]

This article is intended to be a resource showing the support for the doctrine of Transubstantiation in the Church fathers, and not a robust defense of the doctrine as defined by the Council of Trent.1 The Church fathers did not believe in a mere spiritual presence of Christ alongside or in the elements (bread and […]

Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, `You shall not eat of any tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; but […]



Real Presence – Does it Mean Cannibalism?
