True, but it is not exactly thus. The "body and blood" is that of Jesus, and
therefore not a "person" as such. As Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit are one in
the same, what one "consumes" is God himself, hence the reverence of the matter.
And since one is taking God into one's own body, one is not eating a "person"
and therefore, it is not cannibalism.
