  • You know, we partake in Communion at my church and I've always assumed that it was symbolic. I will have to ask.

  • Depends on the person for most christian religions really. Catholics are taught that you are truely eating and drinking the body and blood of Christ. Lutherians and Othrodox churches tend to explain communion in the same way, but really leave it up to the individuals personal belife.
