The Continuum and Real Presence

My good friend Rob Duncan has brought my attention to the following thread over at Spero and asked for my comments. Perhaps you might like to join in as well. I shall respond in due course. Like just about anything with Anglicanism, there is no clear-cut answer. Anglicans run the gamut of seeing the Eucharist as merely a memorial to full transsubstantion. As for myself, I defitely believe in the Real Presence, though probably in a more Lutheran sense. I'll leave you with the famous words attributed to Elizabeth I:

"'Twas GOD the Word that spake it,
He took the Bread and brake it,
And what the Word did make it,
That I believe and take it."
