Sorry for the late comment, but I just found this while doing a search. Almost all the news reports have neglected to mention that according to Catholic doctrine, it is [i]just as valid[/i] to consume [i]only[/i] the Blood of Christ under the appearance of wine. So would be the use of low-gluten (<0.001%) wheat hosts. The girl's mother is making a big fuss about nothing. I think the Jewish parallel would be the mother insisting that the girl be allowed to eat a non-kosher matzoh, rather than simply being exempt from the obligation.

(BTW, I don't think you quite understand the ins and outs of sacramental grace in Catholicism, but that's a side issue here.)
