Amen to that.
[quote:21w3mxfn]You seem to think I am somehow on the wrong side here. THE CHURCH says you cannot recieve Communion if you are not Catholic, not me, personally. I am only trying to explain why the Church has made it so.[/quote:21w3mxfn]
Ummm…. I guess you didn’t read my last post…. the quoted section from a document approved by the Pope clearly states the conditions where a non-Catholic may receive Communion…… and let me be clear=

INTENT TO JOIN THE CHURCH IS NOT ONE OF THE CONDITIONS.

In other words, you were/are wrong.
[quote:21w3mxfn]Your attempts to conjure up a situation where a non-Catholic can recieve communion even though he is not Catholic and does not want to be Catholic are strange at best. [/quote:21w3mxfn]
Strange? It should be clear by now why I presented that situation…
