Kelly, J. Kelly, p. Kelly "What the Apologists had to say about the Holy Spirit was much more meagre, scarcely deserving the name of scientific theology. This is understandable, for the problem which principally exercised them was the relation of Christ to the Godhead.
Kelly "Yet, as compared with their thought about the Logos, the Apologists appear to have been extremely vague as to the exact status and role of the Spirit. His essential function in their eyes would seem to have been the inspiration of the prophets.

Rather than only a duly ordained Catholic priest being able to conduct the LS, with the primary active duty priest being "most of all to offer the Eucharistic Sacrifice," Pastoral Reflections on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Cardinal John J. Rather than consuming the elements in the LS being a primary means of spiritual nourishment that "gives life to the believer""the irreplaceable food for the journey of the pilgrim church on earth. Instead, spiritual life is obtained by hearing the gospel and truly believing it. Acts ; ; ; Eph. Acts In addition, the NT church certainly did not subscribe to the claimed but actually metaphysical Eucharistic theology of the Roman Catholicism, that of the "Real Presence" though that term was apparently originally Anglican , that at the words of consecration by a validly ordained priest, the valid bread and wine, entirely in each one and in each of every particle down to the most minute one , no longer actually exist the bread and wine have ceased to exist after the consecration" - Pope John Paul II, Ecclesia de Eucharistia, ; cf.
