This is my first post and I was so grateful to find this forum. Before I ask this question let me give you a little background information so you have a better idea of where I am coming from.
I converted to Catholism in college. After I left college and my beloved Neuman center I felt really lost and was the only Catholic I knew. I drifted away from the church. Eventually I married a Protestant and over time we have started attending Catholic services again. I guess I could say that I feel the Lord calling me back to the Church. The big problem that I have is that while all that was happening I was diagnosed with Celiac’s disease (which means that I can not eat anything containing wheat, barely, or rye). This means that I can no longer take communion. And, in our church they are not offering wine either for communion (due to flu). So, basically, I can not fully participate in the Mass.
This has left me feeling really sad. What is the point of being Catholic if you can’t take communion?? Can anyone offer any advice or tell me how they deal with this situation??
Thank you very much for reading my post and for helping me out.
