Hi, guys —

When talking about the Eucharist we say that it is the "Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ" and I am confused/wondering why or how Jesus would have a soul since He is God.

I know that, as His creatures, we have a soul that we hope will be in eternity with Him when we die.

  • Can you explain how Christ would have a soul?

Thank you,

Victoria Middlesworth

  { Since the Eucharist is the"Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ" how can Christ have a soul? }

Eric replied:


Christ is fully man as well as fully God. Since He is fully man, he has a soul, otherwise he wouldn't be like us in every way.

The Early Church Fathers agreed that

"What is not assumed is not healed."

It's also important to note that the soul is the life-principle of any living being. Without a soul, a being cannot and does not live.
