RE: Transubstantiation
I'm by no means saying you're wrong in any way, I'm simply relaying my experience. In 21 years as a Catholic I don't ever recall being told that the Eucharist was "actually" the body of Christ. It was sybolism, an analogy. Yes the Eucharist is blessed, but not transformed. Now I have not studied the specifics Roman Catholic beliefs so don't mistake me in any way for an expert, but I'm just saying in years and years of Catechism no one tried to tell me the Eucharist was "literally" the body of Christ. I actually look forward to some other perspectives.

Yes, this was my experience as well. Still is, actually: I still attend church to keep family relationships easy.
