In this May 29, 2013 photo, a Eucharistic Minister holds up a host during communion as Mass is celebrated at a Catholic church in Caracas, Venezuela. Church officials say food shortages and foreign exchange restrictions are causing a lack of ingredients needed to celebrate Mass: altar wine as well as wheat to produce communion wafers. The church’s concerns echo those of Venezuelans in general, who have struggled to find goods such as toilet paper and staple food items like milk, sugar and cooking oil. (AP Photo/Fernando Llano)
