Do we digest Jesus in the Eucharist?

Question:

My daughter asked me what happens to the consecrated host. She asked if we digest Jesus.

Answer:

When the host is digested and it no longer has the appearance of bread, it is no longer the body of Christ. The Lord is only present as long as the appearance of bread is present.
