Statement and Request for Prayers at The Death of Pope Benedict XVI

Memo on Holy Communion from Bishop Olson

Diocese of Fort Worth

August 18, 2022

He reminds the faithful that the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1377) teaches that “Jesus Christ is truly present whole and entire in each of the species and whole and entire in each of their parts, in such a way that the breaking of the bread does not divide Christ."
