I did not understand that.

If there is no physical change then how does it go from bread to flesh? It is my understanding that  flesh and blood are only physical things, dose not something have to have the nature or flesh and blood to be flesh and blood. Or is there a metaphysical part of all matter that determines what type of substance it is.

I was once told it is heresy to say transubstantiation in not a physical change, which is the teaching of consubstantiation. Is that true?
