Before anyone jumps to conclusions, this is not about Pope Francis but the horrible practice of distributing communion to a million people at these giant Papal Masses.
This practice has gone on for a while now under several papacies and it must stop. We saw at the Pope’s mass in the Philippines, the Holy Eucharist being passed around like potato chips person to person from the EMHCs.
Yesterday, we witnessed the EMHCs distributing the Holy Eucharist from paper bags. PAPER BAGS!!
It is simply not feasible to distribute communion to that many people in such a setting. The risk of sacrilege is “too damn high!”
They should allow for a few thousand at the front to receive from ordinary ministers of communion to prevent the type of sacrilege we have seen and the likely sacrilege we have not seen.
Time to end this practice.
