An eight year old child's communion is being invalidated because the communion wafer didn't contain wheat. How ironic to read about the church invalidating a child's communion when yesterday's gospel talked about Jesus healing on the Sabbath. Well, I confess that I gave up on the Catholic church hierarchy years ago and this is yet another sad example of why I'd never go back. I joined the Lutheran church and a liberal congregation (Reconciled in Christ, among other things) so perhaps yesterday's gospel in my church wasn't read in Catholic churches yesterday, but I remember hearing it as a kid - Jesus reminds his critics that the law serves us, not the other way around. And I am well aware of many Catholics - priests and nuns included, however many there are left of them - who would agree. It's unfortunate that the networks have to pick up this kind of bad news about the church, but maybe their stories can serve as a catalyst for change.
Let's all pray for the Vatican to make a WWJD decision.
