I read the actual Vatican statement.  Nothing has changed from before. This is a clarification.

 The low gluten hosts are still OK. In the Catholic Church "matter" (the stuff used for the sacrifice) matters. Not a debate about why.  So the hosts must be made from wheat, not contain sweeteners, be unleavened, and freshly made.  There are reasons for all of this, which you can look up on legitimate Catholic websites. The low gluten hosts are supposed to be under 20ppm (although I think that some are under 100ppm).  Unfortunately, some churches were using rice hosts or making their own. That was the problem.

Thanks for the clarification! Made it sound like people were bringing in their own udi's bread!
