"From this time, many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him." John 6:66
This will no doubt come off wrong, so I'll apologize in advance and try and be mindful...I was diheartened to see on Ash Wednesday that we could have 2 Priests available at Mass for the distribution of Sacramental Ashes, but when it came time for Communion only one Priest was used for Distribution of "THE" Sacrament. I could not help but feel the fingers of the EMHCs Union in this.
Temp correct me, but I didn't know the ashes were a sacrament as much as a devotion. It is blessed, as it the Holy Water in the font, and could be essentially done to yourself.rcg
rcg: Sacramental, not Sacrament.Sacraments: Only the 7Sacramentals: medals, holy water, ashes, palms...things blessed for a devotion.This is precisely why I was asking why we could have 2 Priests to distribute JUST a Sacramental, but at the same Mass, only 1 to distribute a real Sacrament.
Ah, re-read the post. I had you backwards.rcg
