I Thought About It

I went through the training. But my old-fashioned ideas won out, not thinking that anyone should distribute communion but the priest. And I read it is bad to take it in the hand too. God forbid, literally, that a crumb should fall!

Read about St Tarcisius. He was an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, and s child.

I began serving Latin Mass when I was 4 years old (19850). The small town Catholic Priest had no help and asked my parents if I could help. He even said both sides of the prayers until I learned them, or learned to read. You should have seen me in my little black cassoc and white surplice. Thirty years later, I was one of the first four Eucharistic Ministers in Savannah, GA. I've been a Lecture, an Usher, an overseer of the Sunday School program, And now, thirty years later, going to Mass is like having sex. Each time we do it, we say, "We shoud do this every week."

oh, i can follow the latin mass because i've sung it in choirs so often ;) and it was in my lifetime that it was always said in latin. BUT don't you love that AFV video clip where the host falls down the bride's cleavage, and they can't figure out what to do?
