In Exodus 21, God seems to say that killing a slave (v 20) or even an unborn child (v 22) is not as serious as killing “a man” (v 12), because the punishments are less severe. This seems to imply the former have less intrinsic value and dignity than the latter. Or else God contradicts Himself later such as through Church teaching on human dignity. Obviously neither is true, but how should such verses should be interpreted in a Catholic light?
The parish is happy to minister Holy Communion with low-gluten hosts for those who require it. Such persons should approach the altar the end of the procession for Holy Communion and identify themselves to the minister at that time. On Sundays, such persons should make themselves known to an usher before Mass and follow the instructions above.
Those attending the overflow Mass in the gym on Sundays will have to ask the priest after Mass; and communion will be given in the church when Mass is finished.
