What a complete implosion of common sense.

Garry Wills, Sigh , by R.R. Reno, editor of First Things.

Alicia de Colombí-Monguió

I shouldn't be surprised by Garry Wills' denial of the Real Presence, but it truly saddens me. This is a man who knows and should know better; he is an intelligent and erudite scholar who has obviously read Paul: what does he make of his words "any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself (1 Corinthians 11:27, 29). Wills might dislike the word "transubstantiation", which implies an Aristotelian approach in terms of essence and accidents, but i am afraid that he actually denies the Real Presence in the Eucharist. Is he still a Catholic? I can't read his soul, but since he attends Mass, and in all likelihood approaches the sacrament, I pray that he doesn't drink and eat judgement on himself. Often we forget the sins of the intellect, graver than those of the flesh.
