I saw this photo concerning another topic altogether. It appears to me that these are teenagers receiving Holy Communion in a high school setting. It also appears that one of their peers, a teenager himself, is distributing Holy Communion.
My question, and I ask it legitimately, is, does this increase or decrease the teenager's appreciation of the priesthood and the communicants' belief in the real presence of Christ and the reverence and respect that the moment of Holy Communion should elicit?
Or is it just another attempt to indicate that there should be no unique roles for the clergy in distributing Holy Communion, representing Christ in "persona Christi" even in the distribution of Holy Communion?
Let me know.
