The last Tridentine Mass I went to a very elderly priest gave me communion. The side of his finger touched my tongue and I am sure it had slid across many previous to me. Direct saliva contact, much worse than what they are talking about. I'm still alive..of course I haven't been tested for hepatitis recently
I know,but people share the Chalice at Mass in the Novus Ordo.Whenever I attend the Novus Ordo,I skip the Chalice.What if someone has Herpes!!!
I have to believe that the Body and the Precious Blood will protect us:)
Someone pointed out that the Catholic church would have died out years ago if we were at risk. HMMM, is that why there is a decline in the Catholic parishes of parishioners? They didn't leave the church they perished....LOL!
