At the Mass in Brazil, this is how Holy Communion was distributed and in plastic cups. I wouldn't believe it without seeing it. Is there any wonder why there are significant numbers of Catholics who are not Pelagians but want to restore the proper sense of reverence at Mass and for the Sacred Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Crucified and Risen Lord in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar that was/is abundant in the EF Mass?
As a seminarian, I distributed Holy Communion at Pope John Paul II's Mass on the Mall in Washington, DC. They gave us wooden salad bowls for us to hold and by the grace of God or "the Church supplies" theory, these hosts were consecrated by the Holy Father as we stood at least two football fields away from him.
I still have that salad bowl! I hope these Eucharistic Minister, ordinary and extraordinary, keep their plastic cups. "Then He took the plastic cup...this is the plastic cup of my blood..." Oh my! If our ancestors even in the mid 1960's would have seen this as a glimpse into the future, reparation would have been demanded. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?
