comment Why does transubstantiation refer only to communion?

comment Is the presence of evil necessary for good to be expressed?
Voting to close: This question is going to be primarily opinion-based. Theologians have been wrestling with the role of evil for 5k+ years. Christian theologians since the death of Christ. A singular, doctrinal, or universally accepted explanation has yet to arise ...
