Eucharistic theology quiz results

Eucharistic theology created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as Catholic

You are a Catholic. You believe that the bread and wine are transformed by the priest and become the Body and Blood of Christ. Though the accidents, or appearance, of bread and wine remain, the substance has been changed. The Eucharist remains the Body and Blood of Christ after the celebration, and is reserved in the Tabernacle; Eucharistic devotions are proper. As the whole Christ is present under either species, you partake fully of the Eucharist even if you receive only one.

Fr. Chris blogs the Office

Almost a month since my last post; sorry about that. Fr. Chris has inspired me to pop in and at least link to his latest entry with thoughts on the various forms of the Daily Office and Liturgy of the Hours that he's been using. Mother Laura has a good comment, too. My experience with the Anglican Breviary has been similar to his: love it, but once you've prayed Matins and Lauds, the day gets away from you swiftly.
