Her- Are you EME
Her- How you give to people Eucharist with your hands and you take it on your tongue?
- For the hygiene, it is better in the hand, because when giving the Eucharist on the tongue fingers may touch the saliva and that's how diseases could be transmitted.
- By taking the Eucharist on the tongue you are saying my hands are not holy enough to carry it and this is against Jesus teaching.
- Early church they use to have it in hands.
Me- I was raised this way and since I see confusion inside the church so I decided to stick to the way the Vatican gives the Eucharist, and they never give it in hands.
Her- Here in USA this is the way we do it
Me- Why then the Holy See didn't agree with it
Her- Don't believe what you read on the internet.
Me- What I read was a Vatican document.
Her- Bring it to me because I have in my office documents that support my point.
Me- I will bring the documents, but at least the parish needs to be on the same page because at the Arabic mass the priest do not give the Eucharist in hands (even if someone approach with open hands, he insists to put it on the tongue.)
I don't know now what is going to happen but she didn't like what I said and she wanted to talk to the Arabic priest.
