the_o natural_a body_n and_o blood_n of_o christ_n and_o be_v it_o enough_o then_o for_o he_o to_o say_v that_o in_o a_o literal_a sense_n they_o must_v signify_v a_o substantial_a change_n of_o the_o bread_n and_o wine_n into_o christ_n natural_a body_n and_o blood_n without_o answer_v what_o i_o urge_v against_o it_o and_o yet_o in_o a_o literal_a sense_n it_o can_v signify_v so_o for_o if_o this_o refer_v to_o the_o bread_n which_o our_o saviour_n take_v and_o bless_a and_o break_v and_o it_o can_v refer_v to_o nothing_o else_o then_o the_o literal_a sense_n of_o the_o word_n be_v this_o bread_n be_v my_o body_n and_o if_o bread_n be_v the_o body_n of_o christ_n than_o the_o substance_n of_o the_o bread_n can_v be_v
shall_v incline_v man_n to_o expound_v those_o word_n of_o our_o saviour_n this_o be_v my_o body_n of_o his_o natural_a body_n contrary_a to_o all_o the_o sacramental_a form_n of_o speech_n use_v in_o

there_o be_v beside_o substance_n and_o efficacy_n belong_v to_o our_o saviour_n body_n i_o answer_v by_o nature_n there_o be_v nothing_o else_o but_o by_o institution_n there_o be_v for_o there_o be_v the_o sacrament_n of_o the_o lord_n body_n which_o be_v neither_o the_o natural_a substance_n nor_o the_o natural_a efficacy_n of_o his_o body_n but_o a_o sacramental_a communion_n in_o the_o

this_o i_o will_v give_v he_o a_o very_a piain_a text_n 1_o cor._n 10._o 16._o the_o cup_n of_o blessing_n which_o we_o bless_v be_v it_o not_o the_o communion_n of_o the_o blood_n of_o christ_n the_o

blood_n by_o this_o be_v the_o communion_n of_o christ_n body_n and_o blood_n that_o be_v that_o those_o who_o by_o faith_n partake_v of_o the_o sacramental_a bread_n and_o wine_n do_v communicate_v in_o the_o body_n and_o blood_n of_o christ._n this_o be_v a_o different_a thing_n from_o the_o mere_a influence_n of_o his_o grace_n for_o it_o be_v our_o interest_n and_o communion_n in_o his_o sacrifice_n which_o be_v the_o meritorious_a cause_n and_o spring_n of_o all_o divine_a influence_n and_o communication_n we_o must_v be_v mystical_o and_o spiritual_o unite_v to_o christ_n to_o have_v communion_n in_o the_o sacrifice_n of_o his_o body_n and_o blood_n and_o then_o we_o receive_v the_o fresh_a supply_n of_o grace_n from_o he_o which_o be_v the_o purchase_n of_o his_o death_n and_o the_o effect_n of_o our_o union_n to_o he_o and_o this_o communion_n with_o the_o body_n and_o blood_n of_o christ_n we_o receive_v in_o the_o lord_n supper_n which_o be_v institute_v by_o

there_o can_v be_v no_o sacrament_n of_o the_o eucharist_n without_o the_o species_n of_o bread_n and_o wine_n and_o yet_o the_o council_n of_o trent_n decree_n that_o the_o worship_n of_o latria_n which_o be_v due_a to_o the_o true_a god_n be_v 5._o give_v to_o this_o most_o holy_a sacrament_n and_o that_o we_o may_v know_v what_o they_o mean_v by_o the_o sacrament_n they_o tell_v we_o it_o be_v that_o which_o be_v institute_v by_o christ_n to_o be_v receive_v or_o eat_v which_o certain_o be_v the_o species_n of_o bread_n and_o wine_n for_o they_o be_v sensible_a how_o absurd_a it_o be_v to_o worship_n what_o we_o eat_v to_o prevent_v this_o they_o tell_v we_o that_o it_o be_v nevertheless_o to_o be_v adore_v because_o it_o be_v institute_v to_o be_v receive_v or_o eat_v the_o

yet_o the_o whole_a sacrament_n be_v the_o object_n which_o be_v not_o mere_o the_o natural_a body_n and_o blood_n of_o christ_n but_o the_o species_n of_o bread_n and_o wine_n under_o which_o be_v contain_v the_o body_n and_o blood_n of_o christ_n and_o therefore_o to_o adore_v the_o sacrament_n be_v not_o to_o adore_v nothing_o but_o jesus_n christ_n for_o the_o sacrament_n be_v somewhat_o
