Do the bread and wine at Mass actually change into Jesus' Body and Blood?
Bishop Robert Barron's: The Eucharist
Do the bread and wine at Mass actually change into Jesus’ Body and Blood?
Most things appear as they are, but not always.
For example, at Mass we see bread and wine brought up to the altar. Yet after the consecration, the reality of those substances is no longer simple bread and wine. They have been changed at the deepest level, even though they look and taste the same.
How does this happen?

An excerpt from
POPE FRANCIS: REJOICE AND BE GLAD
IN THE LIGHT OF THE MASTER
“Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy”
80. Mercy has two aspects. It involves giving, helping and serving others, but it also includes forgiveness and understanding. Matthew sums it up in one golden rule: “In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you” (7:12). The Catechism reminds us that this law is to be applied “in every case”,
especially when we are “confronted by situations that make moral judgments less assured and decision difficult”.
