Greek Orthodox Church Declares Coronavirus Not Transmitted by Communion

The other side of the body-soul divide.

”For the members of the Church, attending the Holy Eucharist … certainly cannot be a cause of disease transmission,” the Holy Synod declared in its statement.

”Faithful of all ages know that coming to receive Holy Communion, even in the midst of a pandemic, is both a practical affirmation of self-surrender to the Living God, and an apparent manifestation of love,” the Greek Orthodox Church averred. The statement will undoubtedly spark another public controversy on the subject.

Take all other appropriate measures, they say, but leave Communion alone.

It’s a statement of the supremacy of  the soul, the supernatural, the divine, of faith itself.
