    It is difficult to maintain that five or ten extra minutes of silence or good sacred music constitutes an undue prolongation. They may also exercise this function at eucharistic celebrations where there are particularly large numbers of the faithfuland which would be excessively prolonged because of an insufficient number of ordained ministersto distribute Holy Communion. The local ordinary may give to other extraordinary ministers the faculty to distribute Holy Communion whenever this seems necessary for the pastoral good of the faithful, and when no priest, deacon, or acolyte is available. Everyone who is involved in any way with liturgical planning or ministries should get a copy of this document and read it carefully.

    With the passage of time as the truth of the Eucharistic mystery, its power, and Christ's presence in it were more deeply understood, the usage adopted was that the minister himself placed the particle of the consecrated bread on the tongue of the communicant. In short, the clericalization of the laity presupposes a false understanding of the excellence of the clerical state. A thorough liturgical education emphasizing the distinct roles of priest and laity and equipping the students to reason peacefully with erring pastors would be far more in keeping with the manifest wishes of Holy Mother Church. The document continues: "These matters cause the grave pastoral responsibility of many to be recalled to mind. As one reviews the magisterial documents, one notices an increase in what might be called a tone of severity—first, a fuller critique of the abuses in themselves, and secondly, a reproof directed towards those who ignore what the Church is asking for.

    This kind of unsacred training, coupled with extremely mushy catechesis, made it possible for me to remain in a state of total ignorance as to what the Eucharist actually is until about sixteen years of age, when in the course of reading a book attacking transubstantiation given to me by a priest most notable for his sandals and shortsleevesI became conscious, for the first time, of what the Church really teaches about the Eucharist. If practice is deemed useful, it would be easy and far better to do it outside of the Mass, using unconsecrated hosts and wine, much as seminarians do who are learning to offer Mass. With the passage of time as the truth of the Eucharistic mystery, its power, and Christ's presence in it were more deeply understood, the usage adopted was that the minister himself placed the particle of the consecrated bread on the tongue of the communicant.

When we read of "the size of Living Liturgy for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion book congregation or a particular difficulty in which a celebrant finds himself," it would fly in the face of common sense to say that Living Liturgy for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion book document had anything other thanunusual situationsin mind—massive gatherings where it would take an hour for a lone priest to distribute communion to everyone, or a health-condition that would make it nearly impossible for the priest to stand long enough to distribute hosts to all of the faithful receiving.

To avoid creating confusion, certain practices are to be avoided and eliminated where such have emerged in particular Churches:extraordinary ministers receiving Holy Communion apart from the other faithful as though concelebrants;association with the renewal of promises made by priests at the Chrism Mass on Holy Thursday, as well as other categories of faithful who renew religious vows or receive a mandate as extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion;the habitual use of extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion at Mass, thus arbitrarily extending the concept of "a great number of the faithful.

Again, the phrase "the pressure of other pastoral duties" has to be understood in the framework of good common sense. For the curious, I should add that I do not have this book on my shelf, nor do I even remember its title; I do however have a well-thumbed copy of Paul VI's Mysterium Fidei,which ought to be required reading for every literate Catholic in the world.

A good pastor disposes himself towards the commands of the Church as the Centurion did towards the word of Christ; there is no need for lengthy explanations. Section And if, on top of this, many false views are put forward as self-evident truths, we are back in the soup of misinformation.

As one reviews the magisterial documents, one notices an increase in what might be called a tone of severity—first, a fuller critique of the abuses in themselves, and secondly, a reproof directed towards those who ignore what the Church is asking for. It should be noted that the article on the apostolate to the sick specifically reproves and urges the removal of the custom of lay people anointing the sick with holy oil, an abuse found widely among charismatic Catholics.

In short, and in spite of the clear reasons given in Memoriale Domini,the Roman authorities wavered and succumbed. Even if obedience alone would be sufficient, it Living Liturgy for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion book evident that pastors of souls who are animated by a keen awareness of their high calling will have a persistent desire to learn about the doctrinal principles and will explain them to their flocks as occasion permits.
