Easter Sunday, a Catholic tweeted how wonderful the celebration of the Vigil was in her home parish. She added an announcement that only those in the state of grace should come up to receive communion distracted her from the otherwise wonderful liturgy.

Some agreed with her comment and others celebrated the priest’s announcement applauding him for protecting others from sacrilegious communion.
