About 30 minutes into this episode, an Episcopalian receives communion at a Catholic Mass. Everyone at that monastery knows he is Episcopalian. And in fact, up until this episode, I had only seen him get blessings during Mass. I really hope someone chastised the both of the afterwards.
https://vimeo.com/23118161. I think I may write a post on why Episcopalians may NOT receive the Eucharist at a Catholic Mass. I am just upset that I saw that. I had never seen this series up until either yesterday or the day before, and I think it originally aired in 2006, at which time I was not Catholic, and I was 18 anyway. It's interesting seeing what life is like inside a monastery but that bothers me. The Episcopalian guy may really believe in transubstantiation, but he was not properly deposed to receive the Eucharist. Honestly, if I had seen it in 2006, I wouldn't have cared. Oh it's true, religion changes people. I hope he was admonished, I do.
