In Roman Catholic theology, transubstantiation (in Latin, transsubstantiatio, in Greek μετουσίωσις metousiosis) is the doctrine that, in the Eucharist, the substance of wheat bread and grape wine changes into the substance of the Body and the Blood of Jesus,[1] while all that is accessible to the senses (the appearances - species in Latin) remains as before.[2][3][4]

Catholics are aware that the appearance of the bread and wine has not changed. They just try to get around this by arguing that the appearance if not the reality.

This "sophisticated theology" sure is tough - as is trying to nail jelly to the wall.
