Scientific Evidence Of Host Particles Walked On In Catholic Churches. 

Scientific Evidence Of Host Particles Walked On In Catholic Churches. 

Whether you are a traditional Catholic or a progressive modernist Catholic, you should at least care that particles of Jesus from the Holy Communion are falling on the ground and being stomped on all the time in Catholic Churches through out the world. Here is the scientific proof.  You can see the white particle on the upper right hand side of the paten.

I left this particle on the paten after giving Holy Communion this morning at Holy Latin Mass to take a picture of it.  I did this so to show the world scientific proof that large particles, like this one, are falling on the ground and being walked on in most Catholic churches that do not have patens to catch these particles.

I left the paten in a protected area on the altar until after Holy Mass so that I could take the picture of it.  I then consumed the particle and purified the paten.  It is quite often that I see these particles and carefully brush them off the paten into the chalice after the altar boys pass the paten to me at the end of Holy Communion.

holy massAll over the world where I travel, the only place I still see patens being used is in Mexico. Here in the United States the use of a paten is very rare and considered “extreme traditionalism”.  Jesus is dropped on the floor, walked on, to make sure we are not “traditionalist”.

The exact same thing happens when the Holy Communion is given in the hand. Wear black cotton gloves the next time you receive Jesus on the hand.  You will see tiny specks and large specks depending on what comes when the host is given.

It was given to some countries where, in disobedience, some priest began copying protestants. The protestants purposely receive the bread in the hand to show that it is not God/Jesus in the bread they eat at their services.

Let us all pray for an end of the walking of God on the floor of Catholic Churches. And we can start by receiving Jesus humbly on the tongue kneeling down. Copy this picture and give it to your parish priest. Ask him if he has seen large particles fall too.

Forgive us Jesus for not loving you and protecting you from sacrilegious tramplings underfoot.

What To Do When Holy Communion Falls On The Ground At Mass

What To Do When Holy Communion Falls On The Ground At Mass

The Church’s guidelines in this matter highlight the reality of Jesus’ presence in the Eucharist.

On occasion during the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass, a host will fall to the ground or the precious blood will be accidentally spilled. Whenever this happens, the priest, deacon or extraordinary minister of Holy Communion is instructed to take care that the body and blood of Jesus is treated with the great reverence that it is due.

According to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, “If a host or any particle should fall, it is to be picked up reverently; and if any of the Precious Blood is spilled, the area where the spill occurred should be washed with water, and this water should then be poured into the sacrarium in the sacristy” (GIRM, 280). The “sacrarium” is a special basin in the room next to the sanctuary that has a drain directly into the ground. In this way the natural elements are returned to the earth in a dignified manner.

This procedure is taken one step further in an older instruction from a document entitled De Defectibus, where it states, “If the consecrated host, or any particle of it, falls on the ground, it should be reverently taken up, and the place where it fell washed and slightly scraped, the dot or scraping being put into the sacrarium.”

The host that falls is normally consumed, though sometimes it is saved in the sacristy and put in a dish of water and once the host has dissolved enough, the water is poured down the sacrarium.

It is often not possible to complete all these steps during the celebration of Mass, so usually a priest will place a white cloth over the spot so that it can be properly cleaned up after Mass.

The reason why the Church goes at such great lengths to care for the proper handling of the Sacred Species at Mass is because the Church firmly believes in the words of Jesus, “this is my body, this is my blood.” As the Catechism of the Catholic Church explains, “By the consecration of the bread and wine there takes place a change of the whole substance of the bread into the substance of the body of Christ our Lord and of the whole substance of the wine into the substance of his blood” (CCC 1376).

With this reality in mind, it is not simply bread and wine that fall to the ground, but the body and blood of our Savior. This belief informs everything the Church does in connection to the Eucharist, recognizing that it is God himself who is present and our response to such accidents should be formed by our personal love of him who created us.

This is not a scrupulous activity, but one filed with tenderness, saddened that our Beloved has fallen to the ground. It is our duty to pick him back up and treat his body and blood with all due reverence.
