Divorced Catholic president candidate got «half of Jesus» in his pocket

Girlfriend Deborah put the holy host in the pocket of the Presidential candidate Otto Guevara. The event was covered by TV in Costa Rica.

Otto Guevara was banned from taking the Holy Communion. But half of «Jesus» ended up in his pocket.

The Catholic Church in Costa Rica is fuming after the girlfriend of president candidate Otto Guevara misunderstood the «Holy Communion».

Miss Deborah Formal thought the Eucharist host was a blessing, and asked the priest if she could share this blessings with her boyfriend. Guevara had not come forward to take the host, since he is divorced.

Covered on TV Miss Formal committed the mortal sin. She consumed only half of the body of Jesus, and kept the other half in the chest pocket of her boyfriend, the President candidate.

Lets take a look at the TV-pictures:

Miss Formal receive the host from the priest.
Than she walks back to her seat with the host in her hand.
And eats half of the host
and put the other half in the chest pocket of her boyfriend.

«I tried to do something that would allow Otto to carry a part of God in his heart,», Formal explains, in a story covered by the Catholic News Agency (CNA)

After priests were notified of Formal’s actions, they asked the presidential candidate to return the consecrated host. He returned it and it was immediately consumed by one of the concelebrating priests.

My comment:

This event is a brilliant example of the consequences of false Roman Catholic teaching on the body of Christ.

If Jesus the Messiah is to be physically found in a little round piece of bread, than what was the Messiah doing in the pocket of a Presidential candidate in Costa Rica?

What will now happen to his girlfriend, who accepted and consumed only half of the Messiah?

What will happen to the Catholic priest who also consumed the «half-Messiah», after this incomplete «Jesus» was released from the pocket of the Costa Rican politician?

Catholic priests might give the host to Catholic drunkards and womanizers, and corrupt politicians. But only if they are willing to «eat the whole Jesus».

There is no truth in what the Roman Catholics are doing.

The Messiah Jesus can only be found in the Bible. You can only receive Him by accepting His Words, and cleansed by His blood shared once and for all at Calvary Hill in Jerusalem. I guess non of the three involved in this «eucharistic drama», pays to much attention to the scriptures, and «do» the gospel?

  1. Well first of all you are ill informed in saying that each got half of Jesus. The Catholic church does not teach that. It doesn’t matter if you just got a tiny fragment of the eucharist you would still be getting the the whole body blood soul and divinity of Jesus. so to say each got half of Jesus is incorrect.
    Next your argument is weak that this is an example of the falseness of Roman Catholicism, and that it does not know or teach the scriptures. It is true that the girlfriend and the Costa Rican politician may not know the scriptures as may I say many Protestants also do not know scripture, that does not prove a religion to be false.
    The Catholic Church is very scriptural in its reading of scripture, and there is much evidence that the very early Christians also held that the eucharist was the real presence of Jesus. These people were nearer to the time when Jesus was on earth than any Reformation figure in History. I myself have seen evidence of their belief by visiting the catacombs in Italy. It cannot be denied, even when the Church split with the eastern orthodox, they never denied the real presence of the eucharist. It was always believed, until the reformation. Now as far as scripture goes why can Protestants be so literal on many things in the Bible but then basically ignore what Jesus says in Jn.6:22-71 “Amen amen I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you…..
    If you read firther down when many questioned his teaching, Jesus did not call them back to say I only meant it symbolically etc… He let them go. sounds to me He meant what He said. I for one am going to listen when Jesus speaks and not duobt His word.
    How about Mk 14:22-24 “While they were eating, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, and said”take it; this is my body…. Why would Jesus say this? He was not careless with His words, he making a reference to Ex. 24:4-8 where Moses is making official the old covenant with the blood of peace offering. Was the covenant in the old testament only symbolic? It doesn’t seem so because if they broke it they paid for it with a curse.
    Luke 24:13-35 on the road to Emmaus, the disciples did not recognize Jesus , even though he was teaching them from scriptures all the passages referring to him and his passion. they only recognized him when they when “he was mande known to them in the breaking of the bread” It was not by scripture alone that he was made known as a matter of fact they did not recognize him by scripture alone. He was revealed in the Eucharistic meal, which is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass thet takes place today.
    1 Cor.5:7-8 “For our paschal Lamb, Christ has been sacrificed. Therefore let us celebrate the feast…” What does Paul mean by this? He seems to be refering to the new Passover which is the Mass , Where the perfect sacrifice of Jesus’ body and blood in the Eucharist, pass over from sin and death into the new life of salvation.
    1Cor11:26-30 …”Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup unworthily will have to answer for the body and blood of the Lord.” If it wasn’t the real presence then what’s the big deal. I would conclude that Paul thought it was a BIG DEAL, because he knew that it was really the trus presence.
    1Cor. 10:14-17 ” The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ….
    Paul could have written “ios it not a symbol of the body of Christ?” He also mentions that we participate in this blessing. Participate in this sense is in the present tence, not past.
    Look at Hebrews 13;10-16″We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat.”
    what is Paul sayiny here? Is he making a distinction between those who continue to worship in the Jewish tradition cannot share in the Eucharistic meal. This is why the Catholic Church teaches (although not always followed by disobediant Catholics) that those who are not members of the community may not share in the sacrament.
    So to say that the Catholic church does not follow the Bible and is false, is to deny the truths of the Bible itself.
    If you are going to say what the Church teaches, then please get your facts straight and do not distort its teachings.
    Always in Christ.

    1. Dear Pat.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      There is a lot of opinions about the Eucharist in the Catholic Church. Lets look at what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says:

      1336 (….) to receive in faith the gift of his Eucharist is to receive the Lord himself.

      To receive a piece of bread, can never be to receive the Lord Him self. Because if it were so, the disciples would not have disowned Jesus after the last supper. The disciple received Jesus when they obeyed His teachings. And they could do nothing without Him in person, before they had received the power of the Holy Ghost. That took place first on the day of Pentecost.

      1360 The Eucharist is a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Father, a blessing by which the Church expresses her gratitude to God for all his benefits, for all that he has accomplished through creation, redemption, and sanctification. Eucharist means first of all “thanksgiving.”

      That the Eucharist is a «sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Father» is nothing but pure blasphemy. Jesus offered Him self once and for all as a thanksgiving to the Father. When priests repeat His sacrifice and teach us that «Jesus is real physical presented as a sacrifice on the alter» they call Jesus a liar, and makes the word of God null and void. They put them selves in the seat of the Roman butchers from Jerusalem.

      1368 The Eucharist is also the sacrifice of the Church. The Church which is the Body of Christ participates in the offering of her Head. With him, she herself is offered whole and entire (and onwards).

      This is again blasphemy, for the same reasons.

      2181 The Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice. For this reason the faithful are obliged to participate in the Eucharist on days of obligation, unless excused for a serious reason (for example, illness, the care of infants) or dispensed by their own pastor. Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin.

      The truth is that taking the Catholic Eucharist is a mortal sin. Because the Roman Catholic priesthood ridicule the only atoning sacrifice for sins at the cross of Calvary 2000 years ago.

      When people are saved, and receive the Holy Ghost, they stop participating is this kind of pagan masses.

  2. Shalom also to you Ivarfjeld,

    I have to disagree with your conclusions on many things, but first may I say that all the scripture I quoted was not once mentioned in your response, I find it rather ironic that as a Catholic I am quoting scripture to defend the Eucharist and you quote the Catechism, which I have no problem with at all, I just do not agree with what you think it means.

    First of all let me state this clearly that Catholics are not “RE-SACRIFICING” Jesus and denying the “once and for all” saving power of the Crucifixion.From what I gather many Protestants believe that when Jesus said “it is finished” Jn. 19:30 that He was speaking of his perfect sacrifice, and our redemption. In (1 Cor. 15:17) St. Paul tells us that our salvation is completed only by the Resurrection “…if Christ has not been raised, your faith is in vain, you are still in your sins.” While Jesus’ sacrifice is a “once and for all” event it is however still ongoing, it exists outside of time. In scripture he refers to it in the present tense, as in the need for the faithful to sacrifice on an ongoing basis.
    I refer to Zech 14:1-21 ” and every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holy to the Lord of hosts; and to all who come to sacrifice shall take them and cook in them.” This passage in Zechariah which can be interpreted as the end times or the time after the arrival of the Messiah. The ongoing sacrifice by the faithful ones is clearly prophesied.So one can draw clearly the conclusion that the ” once for all “sacrfice did not cease on the first Good Friday, but continues. It is interesting to notice an association between the sacrifice and the meal. The Eucharist which as you quoted from the catechism is a “sacraficial meal,” is fortold in this passage.

    Again in Mal.1:11 ” For the risisng of the sun , even to its setting , my name is great among the nations ; and everywhere they bring sacrifice to my name, and a pure offering…” Here we believe that sacrifice by the faithful, through the eternakl priesthood of Jesus, is ongoing. It is also interesting to note that this prophecy is fufilled everyday, because the Holy sacrifice of the Mass is being celebrated somewhere in the world.
    look at 1 Jn.2:1-2 ” … if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous one. He is expiation for our sins, and not for our sins only but for those of the whole world.” Again St. Paul is referring to Christ’s sacrifice in the present tense, not the past. Christs sacrifice is eternal and did not end 2 thousand years ago, just look at Rev. 5-6 Johns vision of heaven is timeless and it includes Jesus’ sacrifice, again not in the past but in the timeless present.
    look at Ps.110:4″Like Melcchizedek you are a priest forever.” This verse establishes the last supper and therefore the Mass as a sacrifice. One cannot ignore the comparison between Melchizdek and Jesus. Again in scripture look at 1 Cor. 11-24.although Protestants use the wording of in “remembrance of me.” the greek word is “anamnesis” which is a word that occurs very rarely in scripture, and when it does it is associated with sacrafice.
    In Lev. 23:24 “.. you shall keep a Sabbath rest, with a sacred assembly and with a trumpet blasts as a reminder , you shall then do no sort of work , and you shall offer oblation to the Lord” Again sacrifice, ie oblation.
    also look at Hebrews 8:1-3 here, Jesus is offering sacrifice present tense in heaven. When a Catholic priest celebrates the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass , he and all present are joining in that heavenly sacri, with the heavenly hosts, and with JESUS as High Priest.
    THAT IS NOT A MORTAL SIN, and NOT a PAGAN SACRIFICE.

    Pax Christi,
    Pat

    1. Dear Pat.

      Shalom, and thanks for this comment. I have made a full Bible study on this issues, that will be published on the Lord`s day, on Sunday.

      1. Dear Pat.

        Shalom, with some response to the Bible verses you are using in your explanation.

        1 John .2:1-2

        My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for[a] the sins of the whole world.

        This verse is not saying that we have to do the physical sacrifice of Jesus all over again. It says He IS the sacrifice. I do not have to be done again, and again. Repeat NOT required.

        Hebrews 10:1
        [ Christ’s Sacrifice Once for All ] The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship.

        Thats exactly what the Catholics priest do. They are sacrificial copy-cats, who tries to imitates the Old testament priesthood. The writer of the letter to the Hebrews (Jews) explains that It will NEVER work. After Jesus left the cross and the grave, we have to serve a risen Lord. Get the dead idol off your crucifixes.

        Zechariah 14: 20

        On that day HOLY TO THE LORD will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the cooking pots in the LORD’s house will be like the sacred bowls in front of the altar. Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to the LORD Almighty, and all who come to sacrifice will take some of the pots and cook in them. And on that day there will no longer be a Canaanite [e] in the house of the LORD Almighty.

        Wow. When those who are coming to sacrifice will cook in some of the Holy bowls, I guess we are going to have a supper together? The supper is a sacrifice to honor the returned Messiah. I guess in the remaining bowls, they will will bring Him gifts, like in the days of the Three Kings?

        1 Peter 2:5
        you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

        Here you see the only true meaning of the Eucharist. A spiritual sacrifice.

        Romans 12:1
        [ Living Sacrifices ] Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.

        And if it was not spiritual, I guess I had to eat my brother. So He also could become a living sacrifice.

        God of the Bible, Jesus of Nazareth can only be worshiped in Spirit and in truth.

        Hebrews 9:25
        Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own.

      2. Pat

        Shalom.

        Another feedback on your use of scripture in regards to the Eucharist.

        Luke 24: 30-32.

        When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

        (end of Bible verses)

        Did they find Jesus in the bread, or His act of breaking the bread? Had He not done so with His students?

        I have not said, that Christians should not break bread, and share a supper, a «meal», as they are the the Body of Christ on Earth. Like Jesus had supper with the men from Emmaus.

        The lesson is that the men on the road to Emmaus did not recognize Jesus neither by His physical appearance, nor when He tried to open the scripture to them on the road.

        “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

        Jesus wanted to have fellowship with them, and communion with them in the breaking of bread. And since Jesus disappeared as they recognized Him, His physical presence and looks was of absolute no importance. What was needed was a spiritual revelation of the true meaning of His Words, in the body of Christ.

        The papal doctrine of transubstantiation is a copy of the true meaning of fellowship and communion in the body of Christ. Paul sternly warns us of fatal consequences of misusing this teaching of Jesus. I joined in the Catholic Eucharist for some years, but was first changed when I surrendered to the truth, and obeyed His Words.

  3. “but was first changed when I surrendered to the truth, and obeyed His Words.”

    Perhaps in a few years, when you are wiser and more learned, you will not only surrender to the truth, but also practice and adhere to Truth, return to the Church with full HolySpirit given understanding, seek reconciliation and receive Christ’s precious gift of Himself.

    1. Dear Michael.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      I do not need to return to the «Church», because I am in His Church. Its not a building of stone and wood, but living stones that are willing to serve Him in Spirit and in truth.
