Once a week, a child in the Amazon can’t eat of the holy bread and drink of the blood of our Saviour. Just £5 a month can help give them spiritual fulfilment at the same time as they starve and have their home destroyed around them. James Gratrex Jesus Christ IS the Lying dog-faced pony soldier 2020 T-Shirt of Life- even if severe famine occurs, and we ALL would be without bread or wine- Jesus Christ IS our salvation and sustainer. Another reason why taking the ‘literal’ bread to represent His body and salvation is in error. Saima Nisbet no- you didn’t read it correctly. CATHOLICS believe they have to LITERALLY eat the bread the Eucharist to be saved and filled with the Holy Spirit. It has nothing to do with actual food. Letting them starve? That’s how you interpreted what I said? It sounds like progress to me, but I suppose one should have sympathy for those missing their opiate if that’s what they desire. Leave the tribes alone and keep priests out of the Amazon. I’ve seen and experienced, first hand, that many of the tribes have very high ethical and moralistic standards on their terms.
