Pewsitter.com picked up Fr. Z's post of my post on the breaking of the large host which spews particles and crumbs all over the place. In fact, as I state on the post below on this one, I was amazed as I sat at my desk yesterday morning breaking these hosts which I had intended not to waste but use on Sunday for the laity. As I was breaking the large host over my lap with my black trousers, I was amazed at how much of the host became air borne in both large and small particles and traveled some distance. It really was amazing and shocking to me. I've decided not even to give the broken pieces as Holy Communion--all of the large hosts are properly disposed never be be used here again.
But on the pewsitter blog, where Fr. Z's post of my post is located, right below it is a picture of the Holy Father consecrating the very same type of large Host on a story of the Blessed Sacrament that was stolen from a Church in Austria! How odd! Most people really don't know how much spews off of these hosts when broken; I know I didn't.
