Word of the Day: Ubiquitarianism

UBIQUITARIANISM. The doctrine of Martin Luther (1483-1546) and many of his disciples that Christ is everywhere present not only as God but also as man. It was invented by the Reformer in order to account for the real bodily presence of Christ in the Eucharist, without having to admit the priestly power of transubstantiation. (Etym. Latin ubiquitas, a being everywhere.)

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
