Sacramento Bishop encourages communion in the hand
« on: January 19, 2013, 11:39:28 AM »
Never in history has this been seen. Not even when the black plague was in full swing were the priests encouraged to give Communion in the hand.

The Diocese of Sacramento is encouraging the priests and extra-ordinary ministers to administer the Sacrament in the hand due to the "Killer epidemic" that has been widespread in the US.


"Nothing is more miserable than those people who never failed to attack their own salvation. When there was need to observe the Law, they trampled it under foot. Now that the Law has ceased to bind, they obstinately strive to observe it. What could be more pitiable that those who provoke God not only by transgressing the Law but also by keeping it? But at any rate the Jews say that they, too, adore God. God forbid that I say that. No Jew adores God! Who say so? The Son of God say so. For he said: "If you were to know my Father, you would also know me. But you neither know me nor do you know my Father". Could I produce a witness more trustworthy than the Son of God?"  St. John Chrysostom  Sunday Homily

"The two goals of the Jews: The universal domination of the world and the destruction of Catholicism, out of hatred for Christ" --Mgr. Jouin

how about get rid of EMHC, which will lower the risk for contraction?
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

Yeah, during the H1N1 'epidemic' (it actually killed about one-tenth as many people as the ordinary flu kills) my Ordinary 'forbade' COTT. Not that it stopped me in his own Cathedral and I never got so much as a strange look from a Priest!

Go get a flu shot, try not to shake hands if you can avoid it, wash your hands regularly, and stay home from Mass if you're sick. It's not that hard! This is just another excuse to push Communion in the hand and cause more abuses.
"All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass because they are the works of men; but the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison for it is but the sacrifice of man to God; but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for man." - St. John Vianney

(T)ry not to shake hands if you can avoid it, wash your hands regularly...

Since the 'flu tends to be airborne, this is more bull crap as well.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention disagrees with you.

So does flu.gov

Washing your hands frequently and avoiding unnecessary contact with people is a basic way to avoid spreading germs.

My grandmother told me that someone read a notice at her NO parish that handshakes and communion on the tongue were done for the time being.

I'm glad I left the conciliar church.

With the exception of CITH, all the others should be done all the time anyway.  Seriously, do they really need to have a bullet that says "No holding hands during the Our Father"?  This is common sense and should never have been allowed in the first place.
