Question from on 06-29-2007:
Our Parish Priest said in a homily ..of course Jesus is not physically present in the Host. If a Host falls to the floor Jesus does not fall to the floor...ie he does not believe in transubstantiation. Can you please advise if his Masses are valid and are we the faithful present receiving Jesus in Communion.This is very important ,please help
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 07-02-2007:
His personal lack of faith would not invalidate his celebration of the Eucharist.
How sad, though, that he makes such statements. I would think that the diocesan bishop should be notified.
