OK. I admit it. The title of this post was sort of click-bait-ish.
I’m not really proposing the abolition of the doctrine of transubstantiation, but suggesting that Catholics stop using the term “Real Presence”. This older article from my time over at Patheos helps explain why.
Put simply the term “Real Presence” is a term coined by the Reformers in the Anglican church to embrace a high view of the Eucharist while denying transubstantiation
