5) Mystery: The presence of the risen Christ in communion is an inexhaustible mystery that the Church can never fully explain in words. (Luke 24.30-31; Colossians 1.26-27)

Refer to: Luke 22.19-20; John 6.56; 1 Corinthians 11.24-25.

Saint Ambrose (338-397 ad): This bread is bread before the sacramental words; when the consecration has taken place, from being bread it becomes the flesh of Christ.
