Q&A

Why does the Church use the words "substance" and "accidents" in the doctrine of the Eucharist?

Question:

Why does the Church insist on binding its eucharistic doctrine to the technical Aristotelian categories of &quot;substance&quot; and &quot;accidents&quot;? Why must the magisterium insist on a specific philosophical theory of matter?
