Yet Another Reason to NOT Like Canada Any More

Found this over at Jimmy Akin’s Blog

It’s a story about a company that takes unconsecrated communion hosts and sells them as SNACK FOOD. They are marketed as hosts/communion wafers and referred to as such in the accompanying article.

The telling quote is this though…

These paper-thin morsels made from flour and water hark back to Quebec’s churchgoing days and the sacred rite of receiving holy communion.

But in today’s secular Quebec, the wafers and bread are packaged like peanuts and popcorn – and sold as a distinctly profane snack.

Sold as a distinctly profane snack.

Oy…

OK. The snacks are not the Body of Christ. I get that. But as a commenter on Jimmy’s site said, “Would you sell wine as Jesus Juice?” I get that it is flour and water. But all this does is help confuse people who are unsure of their beleive in the Real Presence. Few enough beleive as it is. This is a sure path to the erosion of faith in the Eucharist for those (who are weak in their faith or have doubts) that come into regular contact with it, much less eat it.
