Q&A

Why does the Church keep the worst sinners at a distance by denying them Communion?

Question:

For a while I could not receive Communion as a decision had not yet been made regarding the validity of my previous marriage. I have since wondered why the Church holds the worst sinners at arm&#039;s distance. Is the Eucharist truly the body and blood of Christ (who wants all sinners to come to him) or is it a &quot;symbol&quot; of our membership in this exclusive club called the Catholic Church?<br />
