Patrick Kennedy Communion Controversy For Dummies

This story , largely through the miscommunication of Kennedy himself, got misreported from the start.

There are two Canons of Canon Laws at play here.

Canon 915 deals with an actual ban on Holy Communion. This is administered by an authority. Canon 916 instructs certain people not to present themselves for Holy Communion. One is enforced by the ministers of the sacrament and one places the burden on the communicant himself.

Get Religion has a good piece on which one we are dealing with here at Monday, November 23, 2009
Yes, we canon!
