DENVER (CBS4)– One Colorado businesswoman is taking a symbol of her faith to those on the go.

Theresa Lay came up with God’s Pill after going through a personal tragedy.

“I had gone through loss in my life and I was taking daily communion. And I thought about a portable way, a quick and easy way to do it,” she told CBS4’s Dominic Garcia.

One pill is made of matzo bread powder, the other red wine extract. She says it could be used by the military or people who are traveling. One person who reviewed the product said it has allowed them to worship in the jungles of Gambia.

“Large groups or just people on the go who want to worship and give thanks to God. That’s pretty much how I invented the communion pill.”

Theresa says the pill isn’t associated with any denomination, it doesn’t matter if you’re Protestant or Catholic. She says 2,000 years ago communion was with fresh bread and wine. These days it’s wine or juice and processed wafers. The next step can now be prayer in pill form.

“I believe communion brings hope and healing to the world. It’s been 2,000 years since the last supper and it’s new every time someone celebrates”.

    This is so wrong, it is unbelievable and unforgivable that you would cover a story like this. Holy Communion is SACRED and should be handled as such. You cannot serve Jesus up like a vitamin or an aspirin to be taken at will.

    1. Marie Veilleux Locke says:

      If they hadn’t reported on this story, many of us wouldn’t have known, thus couldn;t warn others to beware of something SO heretical. Anything goes in these days, remember. As the saying goes, “Don’t shoot the messenger”. Be angry at the woman doing such a thing, not at the source reporting to us that it is happening. It’s neither “unforgivable” nor “unbelievable” to report a story like this to inform the Christian community of such a fraud of God’s truth of the Lord’s Supper while also tearing down its true meaning. You’re complaining to the WRONG people.

  2. Rob Fabian says:

    Protestants can call it Communion. It is not a valid Catholic communion, period. It’s false advertising to label it as such.

    The “Catholic” tag should be removed from this article.

  3. Steve Smith says:

    This is not communion, it is heresy. Any Catholic knows better, or at least should. This woman is leading people astray.
