Does anyone know if serving the Holy Eucharist under both species, now in a paper cup and having to
shake the cup in order to get it out of the cup and into your mouth to swallow is Licit under the Eastern Rite
Canons of Laws?
Is this the way the Holy Eucharist should be given?
I just received it that way last Sunday after 4 months of government lockdown.

SLAVA ISUSU CHRISTU!

The CCEO itself doesn’t address how the Holy Gifts are administered since not all Churches covered under it distribute them the same way. Particular Law and the Liturgical books would contain these laws as they pertain to normal circumstances. We are currently involved in extraordinary circumstances and each bishop is the decision maker as to the best approach. My own parish purchased stainless steel spoons, enough for each communicant, that are rinsed in the sacrarium and then washed. I judge this to be the optimal solution.

Fr Deacon Lance:

I believe that the Holy Eucharist should be administered to the Faithful via a metal spoon by ordained Clergy
like yourself and not picked up in a paper cup and swallowed like an Hors D' Oeuvre at a cocktail party.
This way is so disrespectful to the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ!
Thanks

SLAVA ISUSU CHRISTU!
