Information on Low Gluten Hosts

“Like all acts of the sacred Liturgy, the Eucharist uses signs to convey sacred realities… In a preeminent way the eucharistic Liturgy uses the signs of bread and wine in obedience to the Lord’s command and after their transformation gives them to us as the Body and Blood of Christ in the act of communion. It is by taking and sharing the eucharistic bread and chalice —’signs perceptible to the senses’ — that we obey the Lord’s command and grow in the likeness of the Lord whose Body and Blood they both signify and contain.” – Roman Missal
