I learned in my RCIA class over 2 years ago that they are the same thing. Blood is of the body and the body is made of blood. Also, many priests dip the body in the blood prior to giving…thats why some will not let you except it in the hand, only in the mouth. So the blood has also been touched with the body. I was my cousin’s sponser during her RCIA last year and the topic came up and her priest said its not necessary to recieve both but it is of course a good thing. I dont receive the blood during cold and flu season because I get sick very easily. Hope this helps! Hang in there with the morning sickness, I get it so bad!! Drinking ALOT of water really helps me. Ginger lemon tea I heard works a bit. Oh yea, GINGER ALE!!! That helps me so much. Sometimes all I could eat was whole wheat saltines and ginger ale. Ginger has natural tummy soothing properties….its called magic (thats the technical term :wink: ). I’ll be praying for you, remeber, this too shall pass!! Many blessings, Gina
