Disabled boy denied religious sacrament

Post  Guest on Tue Apr 26, 2011 7:25 am

Castro was told by Fr. Phil Henning, with the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, her grandson Kevin had the mental capacity of a 6-month-old and he did not qualify to receive his First Holy Communion.

"He said because he was not able to understand the meaning of receiving the body of Christ," Castro said.

Canon law requires that a child receiving Holy Communion have "sufficient knowledge" of Christ, but it does not define what level of knowledge is considered sufficient.

This is a tough one because if he made first communion and then had an accident couldn't he still receive?

And refusing the Anointing of the Sick I think shows there is more to the story because if she were really as devout as she pretends to be she wouldn't have refused it no matter how "insulted " she was.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean here, Duckbill. Maybe I'm just not fully awake yet though.

I agree.

I also agree with the priest's decision. This is what happens when Communion is seen as a right. When it's refused it's seen as "discrimination" or "politics." "Quick, someone get the ACLU on the case."

Good point De Selby. I am not really sure of my point either. LOL I think you are right about it being used as a ritual of "right". If the boy is so handicapped he can't lose Sanctifying Grace and has no real desire for the Sacrament either. It seems that the woman is the one with the desire and feels the "lose"
