is spiritual torture for many.
Maybe those public-health-Bishops who have forced this upon us will someday explain to people with tender consciences, like the following person, that "Fragments don't matter! Treat them as you would treat discarded kleenex! Everyone else does! Those patens? They are just for show!"
From Joe of St. Therese's blog (2 days ago)
>>>.....just got home from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered at Our Lady of Guadalupe in El Monte (a very nice Spanish parish generally...)I know my purgatory sentence is about to increase 100 fold for this rant, but I really don't care today.I was denied receiving kneeling and on the tongue by the Pastor of the parish....Now bear in mind I'm holding my Missal in my hand ....... My hands were completely occupied, ........I was just about to curse out Father during Communion (I restrained, and VERY reluctantly received in the hand, and was licking my hand well after Mass, I do not want one drop of Our Lord falling because of my negligence) I was virtually crying because to me the act has become totally sacrilegious in my eyes. .....I sighed out a "por que" and Father was about to give Communion to someone else until I finally opened my hands.I feel so horrible. ......<<<
