Transubstantiation in modern science: How can substance change without accidents
#63
Material substance denotes what is physical, while immaterial substance denotes what is, for example, spiritual. I don't believe that word "physical" necessarily denotes any further quality of material substance. We have words such as "perceptible," "measurable," "quantifiable," "empirical," "tangible," "visible," "audible," etc. to treat of such qualities.

Thus, I believe it is proper to say that Christ's Body and Blood are really, truly, substantially and physically present on the altar, but the manner in which that physical reality manifests itself accidentally to our 5 senses deceives our perception, which by nature are quite easily deceived.
