Dipping - called intinction is not usually done in the Catholic church and self-intinction (when the person dips his own host into the wine) is not allowed at all.


And besides when you think about it, that would still bring people's hands in contact with the Precious Blood which is one thing to be avoided. There has even been a suggestion (I think from the US Bishop's Committee) that parishes might want people to receive the Bread only in the hand and not on the tongue so that it would lessen germs from a person's mouth being transmitted from whoever is distributing the Eucharist to other persons.


This morning our pastor came out before Mass and explained that our EM's

Self-intinction (individuals dipping the Body of Christ in the Precious Blood) is not permitted in US Roman Catholic churches.....


and as for the priest/deacon doing the intinction, that would then require altar servers who know how to use pattens so that none of Jesus drips on the floor (if the parish even owns patens with handles).....


we too did not receive Jesus from the chalice... and we too did not have the sign of peace....


the thing about hand holding during the Our Father is that it is NOT a part of the Mass rubrics. ... even though so many hold hands anyway....

I know some say that the officials are going overboard on this swine flu stuff and others are saying that in some areas, they are not doing enough.
