Confessions of even the most heinous of crimes and sins — such as genocide or mass murder — are handled at the local level by priests and their bishops and are not heard by the tribunal.

Its work involves those sins that are reserved for the pope — considered so serious that a local priest or bishop is not qualified to grant absolution, said Cardinal James Francis Stafford, an American who heads the Apostolic Penitentiary.

These include defiling the Eucharist, which Catholics believe is the body and blood of Christ. Stafford said this offense is occurring with more and more frequency, not just in satanic rites but by ordinary faithful who receive Communion and then remove the host from their mouths and spit it out or otherwise desecrate it.

Not Catholic. Never been.

Generally I don't poke fun of other religions, but I have this weird compulsion to make the mock apple pie recipe using communion wafers now.

Does that mean I'm going to hell?

Only if you use consecrated wafers. I've got a couple packages of communion wafers that I use for making cookies.

Gosh darn those wacky Catholics.
No, but I think you'd probably get a kick out of antitheism.

If they didn't make those wafers so awful-tasting, people wouldn't want to spit them out.

My Presbyterian church used cut up bits of wheat bread. Way more nummy.
