I am merely making an observation here. I am not saying that this particular practice is wrong or anything like that.

Just stop and think about it. The Catholics believe that when blessed the host and wine become the body and blood of Christ. They mean it literally does, not symbolically. Is it just me or is that sort of creepy? That's right up there with sacrificing chickens and drinking snake venom. Please do not bother to explain the symbolic and holy meaning of this practice to me here unless you truly feel that someone else may benefit because I am already fully aware.

Now on the other hand, if you want to explain the holy and symbolic meaning behind sacrificing chickens to me, that would be kind of cool. :)
