Communion in a Lutheran church?

As a Catholic can I receive communion in a Lutheran church?

Dear friend,

Since the Catholic Church teaches that when the Protestant Reformers ceased to believe in the Sacrifice of the Mass, their ordinations could no longer be valid. So their Eucharist is just bread and wine. Catholics are ordinarily not allowed to worship in their churches, let alone receive their invalid eucharist.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
