More Giving Eucharist To the Unbaptized

This is happening in a Episcopal Church setting , but I can imagine some out to Lunch Catholics might endorse it too. Still what Anglicans do will have an effect on Catholics.

See Playing the Holy Spirit Card

Playing the "Holy Spirit Card" is actually a huge issue that plays out in both Catholic , and Protestant circles. I hope to get back into that later this week.

However as to Communion to the unbaptized it's hard to imagine anything that goes against a rather consistent practice of the early Church and Church Fathers. In fact in some writings "the secret" as it was called was not mentioned except in vague terms. The practice of even people coming into the Church and leaving before communion was quite common. So it's hard for me to see how such a leap can be made.
