We’re sure the atheist movement will have a field day with this one. Hundreds of people may have been exposed to the Hepatitis virus while taking communion at Our Lady of Lourdes in Massapequa Park Christmas Day.
Mary Ellen Laurain, a spokeswoman for the Nassau County Department of Health, told NBC New York that “a person involved in the communion process has tested positive for hepatitis A.”
“The risk is low but we want to make sure that anybody who received communion on that day and those times could have been exposed,” she added.
Symptoms may include fever, fatigue, poor appetite, nausea, stomach pain, dark-colored urine and jaundice. The disease is rarely fatal and most people recover in a few weeks without any complications.
Bet you say your grace before you eat NOW, won’t you?
