Long Awaited Document On the Eucharist Is Almost Here


On Friday the Vatican is going to release the follow-up document to the Encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharista. That was an 87 page letter to the Church on the importance and meaning of the Eucharist. This new document is supposed to set out disciplinary norms to govern liturgical abuse.

I don’t know about you, but I have been looking forward to this. I am relatively lucky in that there are few, if any, liturgical experimentations to speak of. I do think we have way to many extraordinarily ordinary Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist at each Mass and not nearly enough Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. I also get the urge to beat the crap out of some young kids who reach up and grab the consecrated host from the priest’s hand. But, it being Mass and all, I manage to accept the grace of God and not do that. 🙂
