When I took communion yesterday the priest was taking the host out of a special container for the person beside me so I am sure it was the gluten free hosts. He didn't give them to anyone else.

What is the most interesting thing though is I have friends who are Roman Catholic Priests. Never once have they refused me the table, nor commented on me coming up for the meal. In fact a Bishop I know said everyone was welcome, as long as they are Christian - being a member of The Roman Church had nothing to do with Jesus' teachings and everything to do with what Rome wanted you to believe. The only criticism I have ever received was from other congregants who knew I ministered in another denomination; they were appalled that I went up for communion - even though the priest was a family friend and made it clear we were all welcome.

If they know you are not Catholic they should not be giving you communion, plus a Bishop should know better. It's in the prayer book at all pews. It's the rules, no sense in getting angry over it.

Everyone CAN make a spiritual communion though if they can't come up for the host and wine. The prayers are at the front of the prayer books in every pew.

Here are the prayers for Spiritual Communion--

Prayers for a Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.


Oh Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot receive you in Holy Communion. Come, nevertheless, and visit me with Your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto Your own. Amen.
Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

If you don't believe in the first prayer just say the second one. This is for those who cannot receive communion since they are in a state of mortal sin and need to go to confession first or they are not members of the Catholic Church.

One of the best Catholics I ever met was a convert. Not only that but he needed to get his first marriage annulled before he could become Catholic. He went through a lot to be a Catholic.

Both!

But, mostly a person that acts like a Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount.

Every other Sunday for 15 years, I went to mass at a Ukrainian Catholic Church. Communion there was very different from that of the Roman Mass. At the Ukrainian Mass, the priest used a gold spoon to fish out a piece of bread which was swimming in wine. Communicants always got a taste of wine with the bread.

(Made me feel quite adult at 7 or 8.)
