Allergic to the host

My daughter and I have celiac disease. In this disease, the body is intolerant to gluten, the protien found in wheat, rye, oats, and barley. It is controlled by omitting gluten. I don't have any issue with eating this way, I feel great. My kid is doing great, too. Now in the national news: an 8 year old girl is being denied communion because the Catholic Church insists that the wafter have some wheat. Hummm, my body won't accept the 'host'. The Body of Christ. My entire body is rejecting the symbol of the Lord. Interesting, eh? MSNBC - Girl with digestive disorder denied Communion
