AUSTRALIA : DOG GIVEN HOLY COMMUNION AT MASS
A DOG was given Holy Communion at a recent Mass held by the group "Inclusive Catholics".
The Archdiocese responded with a statement by Archbishop Denis Hart of Melbourne, “That anyone would feed the Eucharist to a dog is an abomination.” The service was led by Fr. Greg Reynolds, who resigned in 2011 and is not permitted to offer Mass or serve as a priest.
“When the consecrated bread and wine were passed around, the visitor took some bread and fed it to his dog,” a parishoner named Zwartz said. A woman named Irene Wilson led the Liturgy with Fr. Reynolds helping; so it is unclear if consecration actually took place. (Various News Sources)
