Concomitance

Concomitance means to occur with something else.  Something that is concomitant occurs alongside or in conjunction with something else.  Often, that which is concomitant is secondary in effect to something else and is associated with it.  In theology, particularly the Roman Catholic Church, it is the teaching that the entire body of Christ (including the blood) is contained within the communion wafer, and both are therefore received in the one element.
