Blogging has been light because of several reasons. In addition to trying to answer Catholic questions on Yahoo Answers, I have embarked on a new project. Inspired by the desire to correct liturgical abuses, I have searched the Internet using the terms "Eucharistic Minister" and "Minister of the Eucharist". I have emailed parishes that use those terms to refer to laypeople.
Why did I do this? Well, by definition, the only Ministers of the Eucharist are the bishops, priests, and deacons. The term "Extraordinary minister of Holy Communion" is to be used as opposed to the term "Minister of the Eucharist" or "Eucharistic Minister" as stated in the Vatican document Redemptionis Sacramentum in paragraphs 154-156. I am hoping to correct a common liturgical error.
Also, I attended a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party last weekend, and I spent most of the weekend working on the party.
Tomorrow, I have my final meeting, where I will receive my official acceptance as a seminarian for my diocese. I ask for your prayers for this last meeting - the most important of them all.
