Resolutions from 1908

Resolution 32

The Conference declares that the only elements which the Church can sanction for use in the administration of the Holy Communion are bread and wine, according to the institution of our Lord. While declaring this, the Conference does not pronounce judgement upon such a course as in cases of absolute necessity may be in particular regions adopted by those bishops on whom falls the responsibility of dealing with an imperative need. But it would insist that any such divergence from the practice of the Church, if it is to be justified by actual necessity, ought to cease as soon as the conditions of necessity are over.
