"I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean."

That's my philosophy, too. We're mere mortals and so who are we to question the whys?
I think there is a reason for everything in our lives, even if we aren't quite sure what it is.

Culturally, in Jesus' time his companions would have been grossed out at the Last Supper if they thought he meant his REAL body and blood; one can extract this from the passage of the Last Supper in the Bible as his disciples knew he was speaking in figurative terms as canabalism was sinful (taboo) and prohibited in the Jewish faith. If they felt he was speaking literally they would have thought he was crazy.
Unfortunately, the communion wafer still contains wheat after it is sanctified during the Mass and that proof is made by the celiacs themselves.
My contention is that God created all grains and who are we to reject rice over wheat. We are simple men and women and do not have the knowledge of God. Who then is like God? Christians remain obedient to God not men. God is our creator not men. So what God has made through that first mystery called "creation" is good and perfect for our consumption. The common thread between wheat and other grains is that they are all from the earth made by God and that should be good enough for any Christian denomination.

If they are not offering communion under both species, my daughter makes a spiritual communion, a simple prayer for those who CANNOT receive communion. Our priest spent time teaching her the prayer, and for us it's an elegant way for her to always be able to participate in communion.
I pray that they change the rules, but until then this works for us.
