Also, please note that
we hold the traditional position of the Church that NO lay persons (whether
male or female) should handle the Holy Eucharist (except in cases of grave
necessity – e.g. to prevent profanation). This is consistent with what the
Church has always held...
"It must be
taught, then, that to priests alone has been given power to consecrate and
administer to the faithful, the Holy Eucharist. That this has been the unvarying
practice of the Church, that the faithful should receive the Sacrament from the
priests, and that the officiating priests should communicate themselves, has
been explained by the holy Council of Trent, which has also shown that this
practice, as having proceeded from Apostolic tradition, is to be religiously
retained, particularly as Christ the Lord has left us an illustrious example
thereof, having consecrated His own most sacred body, and given it to the
Apostles with His own hands." (Catechism of the Council of Trent)
