Quickly, though, I think the Catholics believed it does transform once you partake in communion. (If I misstate someone, sorry) I know my affiliation (Baptist) affirms it is strictly symbolic.
Yeah, and then there's the theory of consubstantiation, which is that it's both, at once. Eastern Orthodox and, I think, some Lutheran sects go with this one.
