A quote from Fr Byrne


Untitled“You know people say that you can’t teach children about transubstantiation. They think that the word is to big for them to say. What rubbish. They have no trouble saying supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus (from Mary Poppins) which means absolutely nothing. So they can certainly manage to say transubstantiation which means absolutely every thing”

  1. I love that quote! I have taught transubstantiation to my kids. I have to admit, most of them understood at grade 2! I broke the word up phonetically and explained parts of it, like trans from the latin, etc.
