Q&A

Has the Church formally declared that Jesus is fully present under the appearances of both bread and wine?

Question:

At a recent RCIA meeting a fellow instructor and I clashed over her claim that it&#039;s neither scriptural nor a formally defined doctrine of the Church that Jesus is wholly present under either species at Mass. She said this belief is just an &quot;out-of-date pious custom&quot; and that Catholics should always receive both the species in order to &quot;fully participate at Eucharist.&quot;
