Philosophical consideration of Eucharistic Consecration
#4
And this is the kind of thinking that causes scandal to our Orthodox brothers and sisters. How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? Seriously, the Eucharist is a mystery and cannot be explained philosophical. If we tried, we'd find it to be impossible, since accidents cannot be separated from their substance.

God the Holy Spirit accomplishes something beyond all human understanding in the consecration. Let's leave it at that. I say this as a professional philosopher.
