For instance, Catholics do not receive bread at Mass; they only receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Secondly, Catholics do not re-enact the Last Supper, they participate in the one and only Last Supper because it is a Kairos event and stands outside of time. Even though this is a book for children it is important to understand the vocabulary and concepts before making them simpler.
