Maybe you need to be directing your comment to Anthony as I never stated the fruit of his vine was referred to his blood. Nor that the priest was given power to change the bread and wine into the elements of Christ body.<quoted text>
"fruit of the vine"
Jesus NEVER referred to the "fruit of the vine" as "His blood."
Jesus said, "take and eat."
He LITERALLY gave them bread and juice.

1. The priest isn't given the "power" to change the bread and wine. He's not "doing" it.
2. Transubstantiation describes what takes place with the elements, the conversion of them into His body and blood. It is not describing the "power", the priest, the Holy Spirit, the Sacrifice, etc.
3. Transubstantiation is essentially the description of that moment, the before and after, when the change occurs. Nothing more.
4. Transubstantiation is a part of the doctrine of the Eucharist, it is not the doctrine itself.
You are describig something the Bibe never say's.
