Well apparently it doesn’t apply for Mel Gibson. As I linked an article that plainly stated he was still able to receive communion.
How do you know what is Mel Gibson's heart with more authority than God and Gibson's priest and confessor?
And the media is always fully true and correct?
If Mel is no longer living in sin, has confessed and been shriven then, like you or me or any other sinner forgiven by Our Lord, he is then again in a State of Grace.
What is the point you are so feebly trying to make?
