From a priest reader:
Your refrain ‘brick by brick’ has struck a cord with me. A reader recently sent in that he/she noticed the priest purifying his hands after the distribution of Holy Communion. I had started doing this some time ago, maybe a year? It was something I saw a few bishops doing at the College Seminary I attended. The reader asked if it was in the near future that the priest might begin to hold his thumb and forefinger together after the Consecration. Well, it took some practice to be able to life the chalice, how to flip pages and such; but I started to do this at private Masses that I said (as there are four priests for the three daily Masses where I reside). It got to the point where it was habitual to do just that, and now it is a regular part of my celebration of the Holy Eucharist. To me, it is a constant reminder of what I am doing as I celebrate. I hope to learn the Classical Form soon, when I can find time! Thanks for all your work. God Bless!
This is the sort of message that lifts my day!
