The Catholic Church does not understand itself as a denomination which has more the flavor or a breakaway group, whereas the Catholic Church is a communion of 20+ churches that all share a unity in faith, belief & practice (see here). The Catholic Church sees other Churches, such as Baptist, Presbyterian, etc. as Ecclesial (Church) Communities. ...

As was pointed out in the comment, the best translation is traditions, not ordinances. In the Ignatius Study Bible, New Testament from the Second Catholic Edition, RSV, we read this note: 11:2 the traditions: i.e., the beliefs and practices of Christianity stemming from Christ. By extension it refers to the gospel as it was delivered to the early Church ...

This gives you the Catholic use of and understanding of intinction. Intinction is not permitted by the laity receiving Eucharist, but is done by the priest according to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal. If Communion from the chalice is carried out by intinction, each communicant, holding a Communion-plate under the mouth, approaches the ...

I would answer thus. First one must understand what is meant by this philosophic concept. Transubstantiation for a Catholic is from the philosophic concept of substance and accidents which could perhaps be phrased reality and appearance.

Consubstantiation (also can impanation) says that, after consecration, bread remains and Christ becomes present within, among, or "along-side" the bread. Transubstantiation says no bread remains after consecration; the substance of bread no longer exists, having been replaced by the substance of Christ.

The Lutheran understanding of the Real Presence is that at the consecration, which happens through the power of the Holy Spirit, the bread and wine become the true body and blood of Christ "in, with, and under" the form and substance of bread. "In, with, and under" is the description of the Real Presence in Luther's Smaller Chatechism. I was taught that this ...

The substance is the reality of the thing, in this case bread or wine and the accidents is what it appears to be.

How do protestants understand Jesus' statement that unless we eat the flesh of the Son of Man we will have no life? John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. John 6:67-68 Then said ...
