‘Communion to Go’ Canceled

Our Lord put into bags

July 21, 2020  0

A Minnesota Church got busted for packaging Holy Communion.

Video shows parishioners last week picking up the Eucharist in to-go bags after Mass at Pax Christi Catholic Community in the archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. 

The archdiocese, under Abp. Bernard Hebda, shut down the practice immediately.

U.S. bishops in May strongly opposed Communion in containers. The USCCB stated: "Distribution of the Eucharist in another vessel or container (a plastic bag, paper cup or a metal pyx) is not warranted."

Churches claim such sacrilegious antics are needed to stop the spread of the Wuhan virus, but USCCB guidelines say otherwise.

"From a public health perspective [it] may even increase risk: CDC guidance suggests that the virus is not easily transmitted by food, whereas passing other containers from person to person involves more contact with surfaces."

Vatican liturgy chief Cdl. Robert Sarah has also denounced Communion in bags, referring to those doing this as not believing in the Real Presence. 

"God deserves respect; you can't put Him in a bag. I don't know who thought of this absurdity," he said.

While reverent reception of Holy Communion is integral to the Faith, fervent Catholics are hoping bishops will continue to allow them to receive Christ worthily.
