Communion Bread Must Contain Some Gluten, Vatican Says

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.
This is a terrible new directive for those who suffer with gluten-allergies such as people with:
- Celiac Disease
- Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), or Duhring-Brocq disease
Celiac disease can develop at any age after people begin eating foods or medicines that contain gluten. About 3 million Americans have celiac disease. Left untreated, celiac disease can lead to further serious health problems including:
- Type I diabetes
- multiple sclerosis (MS)
- infertility and miscarriage
- Neurological conditions like epilepsy and migraines
- short stature
- intestinal cancers
The fact that the Vatican is willing to endanger the lives of people with Gluten disorders is disturbing to say the least. They are supposed to be protecting people and even healing people and yet here they are passing directives that could cause serious suffering to their followers.
