I'm thinking of jumping back to my blogging. Figures the first thing I post is about the Communion Wars and those who feel like they can determine who can and who cannot receive. A newish blog I've been following "Dating God" made an excellent post on the subject and I thought I'd pass it along. I must say having been in similar shoes as the Governor and his girlfriend, it's an interesting discussion. I must admit that when I do not receive the Sacrament of Confession for whatever sins I feel are necessary to confess to my confessor, I refrain from receiving the Eucharist. I was actually abstaining long before I lived with my boyfriend-then fiancé-now husband. (A little over a year before I felt like I was in a state of Grace again.)
It's a personal call and I don't think anyone should be judged for their actions-- other than by God-- and they should feel like they can always go to their confessor for absolution and a return to Grace without anyone else looking over their shoulder and declaring them unworthy to receive Communion.
