dc.description.abstractCeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder that is triggered by consuming gluten, the only cure being to strictly maintain a gluten-free diet. To anyone, this would seem to be a straightforward task; however, for the practicing Catholic who wishes to partake in the Eucharist, religious agitation ensues. With an in depth analysis on the topic of inclusion through the eyes of a Christian, this thesis will draw upon the necessary mannerisms and compassion that all individuals must value when looking to invite a stranger, whether that be a celiac or other person in need of accommodations, to one's table. The meaning and practice of table fellowship will also be evaluated in a discussion that ties in hospitality and welcoming all to sit down and dine together. Furthermore, this thesis will explore the traditions behind the ritual that has been practiced since Jesus’ Last Supper, as well as the true meaning of the Body of Christ. First hand sources from priests and the Vatican’s Instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum will help shed light on the controversial subject of offering and accepting a gluten free host.
