Having spent a goodly portion of the only vacation I have taken in over two years in a convalescence facility, I have had the opportunity to observe sacred rituals as enacted by quite a number of extraordinary ministers of Communion.
God bless them all for their works of mercy.
Having said that, I would also like to note that in many cases either their training seems to have been inadequate, or their admission to the ministry ill-considered.
If they were properly trained, too many of them seem to feel that their primary charge is delivery of generalized comfort, rather than the Blessed Sacrament; and that they are free to personalize the ritual.
Nonetheless, I am very grateful.
