North Dakota bishop exposes hundreds to hepatitis A during Communion
The bishop of the Fargo Catholic Diocese in North Dakota has exposed potentially hundreds of church members in Fargo, Grand Forks and Jamestown to the hepatitis A virus in late September and early October.
The state Health Department has issued an advisory of exposure for anyone who attended five churches and took communion. State Immunization Program Manager Molly Howell says the risk is low, but officials feel it‚Äôs important to alert people to the possible exposure.
I'm happy that you like my comments on the Romish Church, you should like this one as well, since it is about bishops, Apostolic Succession, which also invalidate the authority of the Anglican Church as well.

Good mornin' Christopher.
Twenty minutes ago, just after I got up, I took a Zolmitriptan tab because of a migraine. Normally this med will clear a migraine in just over an hour, by altering the arteries in my head. I am hoping it works this morning, because I am off shortly to the local theatre, where I go every Tuesday to run my pitch at the Indoor Market, where I try to sell my paintings. Talking to prospective customers is important, so I need to feel well.
It is a mystery to me too, as you rightly said, I don't get it. Yet God is still in control of both of our lives, so keep looking up. He has saved my life many times - praise God and Amen - and brought me out of a severe depression some years ago, not by miracle but through people.
No Penny, in fact, I would get concerned¬†if you didn't. I've come to get to know the things that you're super passionate about. Like how you won't eat anything that is organic, how you swoon over processed foods, free range=yuck, and how you are a major proponent of GMO's...ha-ha.
John John, sorry ro hear about the ongoing headaches. I really don't get it. Who knows, I guess, but I can't imagine that they are God's will so I don't understand why He hasn't taken them away. I pray about the depression every day...every day for many years, but without any positive results to date. Situations like these, your headaches, the depression, etc, leave me a bit confused as to why He doesn't seem to answer when they are such physical/mental barriers.

The ecumenists love doing this sort of thing. They know it's hypocrisy but they do it anyway, as a show of "unity". Wishy-washy nonsense, trying to get people on board, saying, "See how the disciples love one another." Orchestrated gobbledegook!
Depending on the strength of the wine they are chugalugging, one would consider it an anti-bacterial drink as it is. One of the major reasons for wine drinking was not to get high, but not to be brought down low by disease -- as they understood it.
I wouldn't prefer a shared cup either, but they've got these generations obsessed with germaphobia.... when in old times they were feeding themselves probiotics through the foods... we have more good microbes in our body than our own cells!! if we kill everything off, we don't live! anyone who composts knows there's a complicated array of microbes that create and enrich the soil. well, Christopher, you wouldn't expect anything less of me than to chime in on a health topic. Miss Dolores, you have a great day too.
Oh boy. My wife is a germaphobe, so you all can imagine how uptight she is during the communion and the other part where they say "peace be with you"; shaking hands with everyone. She gies through so much antibacterial that I've told her it probably stopped working for her long ago. I have heard that overuse builds up resistance; soon becoming non-effective.
I went to a church that practiced a common shared cup for Communion once. I never went back! Lol. That's just gross. The fact that the priest were women and they poured a second helping of communion wine for themselves didn't help either.
I feel for the people....but this was not the participation of the ordinance of the Lords Supper but the very blasphemous idolatrous mass that mocks the finished work of Jesus Christ. Roman Catholicism is a false pagan religion.....leading billions to hell.
