This trial takes place in an International Court where Catholic representatives must demonstrate that Jesus Christ is truly present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity under the "accidental appearances" of bread and wine. And they must do so using only Scripture and very restricted historical evidence.
Now, more than ever, a trial concerning the Mass is critical to determine whether it will be Protestants or Catholics who must die to the ego in order to do the will of Jesus Christ. And a recent statement from Pope Benedict XVI made clear that Protestant communities cannot lay claim to the title of "Church" because they lack what the Catholic Church considers "essential to be a Church". This has raised the ire of Protestants around the world because nothing is more lacking to them than the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
This trial will deal primarily with one issue. It will be a battle over whether or not Jesus literally meant it when He said,
"Take and eat, this is My Body which is given up for you", and in like manner, the cup, take and drink, "This is the Cup of the New and Everlasting Covenant in My Blood that will be shed for you and for many that sins may be forgiven. Do this in Memory of me".
Once the facts are presented, several other issues that swirl around the words of "Consecration" will be drawn into the vortex of what is at stake, and what is at stake in this trial is nothing short of sensational.
If Protestants are proven wrong it would mean they must embrace all of Catholicism, including the Catholic Mass which they find repugnant for many reasons. And worst of all, they would not be able to hide the shame of having lived in open rebellion against the most Sacred Reality in existence, and the entire world would know about it. It would mean that Protestants could no longer go about referring to the Mass as "Hocus Pocus Dominocus", the greatest magic trick of them all.
As you read this book you will find yourself living vicariously through someone in the courtroom. At times you may see yourself on the witness stand, and at other times you may see yourself as one of the attorneys or one of the jurors. But one way or the other, your religious convictions will be indelibly affected by the facts that will be presented in this trial.
