If you're Catholic, the Church does not accept a gluten-free host as being vaild for communion.

Article called:
Wonderful News for Catholics with Celiac Disease.


Quote: Enclosed with each package of hosts is an insert quoting from the November 2003 News Letter of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Secretariat for the Liturgy concerning these low-gluten hosts:

" . . .. . approved for use at Mass in the United States.

Has anyone tried these hosts and were they well tolerated?
I'm afraid to try anything new especially since having reactions with the regular host before! but..................it's starting me thinking of possibly trying it.
