Taiwan's non-Catholic vice-president received Communion at canonization ceremonies
Catholic World News - May 01, 2014
The vice president of Taiwan, who is not a Catholic, has come under criticism for receiving Communion during the canonization Mass for Popes John Paul II and John XXIII.
It is not clear whether Wu Den-yih was aware of Church rules regarding reception of the Eucharist. A veteran diplomat told the Taiwan Times, however, that visiting officials were always briefed on the Church’s rules.
