St. Thomas says that angels are "immaterial substances" http://www.newadvent.org/summa/1050.htm.  So I think that material substance is physical, rather than substance in general.  Christ's body is material and so physical; it was at the Last Supper, on the Cross, after the Resurrection (as He proved to His disciples), and in the Holy Eucharist (where we believe by faith - although even here there are sometimes tangible miracles).
