Pope Francis celebrating the ordinary form of the Mass extraordinarily!
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
