Welcome Marcilla,"it's just easier to let the Church decide what [he] should think."
Who is [he] might I ask? God perhaps? It's mostly from the manner of the words "what he should think.
What I had stated is part of my interpretation about Communion. The Christian eucharist has roots in older beliefs and was distilled down to what it is today, and of course, as such the Church has its own sanitized explanation for what it all means and what it is supposed to do for one. Did the priest explain that as well as what transubstantiation itself is? And was he giving the Church's explanation, or his?
'IKR', that's a new one on me, thx.
