The Body of Christ can't be gluten-free

Postby Witness » Tue Jul 11, 2017 2:36 am

NYT wrote:Vatican Refuses to Go Gluten Free at Communion

The unleavened bread that Roman Catholics use in the celebration of Mass must contain some gluten, even if only a trace amount, according to a new Vatican directive.

The directive, which was dated June 15 but received significant attention only after it was reported by Vatican Radio on Saturday, affirms an existing policy. But it may help to relieve some of the confusion surrounding church doctrine on gluten, a protein that occurs naturally in wheat and has become the subject of debates over nutrition and regulation.

Interesting. It is actually the true body of Christ after transubstantiation so the question is moot.

Not mentioned in the NYT article, but this is a side effect of prohibiting Mexicans from using corn tortillas.

Besides, even celiac patients can drink the blood of Christ, so it all good. :)

I first thought these were two woos colliding: religion & food. Yet it seems it's really a problem for some (religious) people who must completely abstain from gluten.

So the Pope is nasty again, even if his church is good at abstinence. (For the flock, I mean…)

Yet a burning question remains: does it make you fat? :mrgreen:

Well, there is not firm evidences--thanks--that he impregnated any of his A1DZ. According to Mark, he hated them.

But also, according to Mark, he brothers and sister thought he was a loon.

This is Significant!

Guess God can't quite manage that transubstantiation without gluten. An odd weakness for an otherwise omnipotent being,.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The point is that what a person consumes has no gluten so the question is moot. Look at the wiki quote below. It contains greek so it is authoritative.
Transubstantiation (in Latin, transsubstantiatio, in Greek μετουσίωσις metousiosis) is, according to the teachings of the Catholic Church, the change of substance by which the bread and wine offered in the sacrifice of the sacrament of the Eucharist during the Mass, become, in reality, the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

The Catholic Church teaches that the substance, or essence, of the Eucharistic offering is changed into both the body and blood of Christ.[1] Belief in this doctrine was made obligatory by the Fourth Council of the Lateran in 1215,

Don't be silly.

He chooses not to as an expression of His omnipotent will and to test your faith.

Because if you can do anything you want about gluten, what next? Candy bars?

That sort of lack of obedience what leads to faggots marrying, you know. :P
