I has placed a question on the blog about the priests who concelebrate not consuming both species. Because I was probably traveling and didn’t have the chance to dig, I opened things up for answers.
Today, while sitting on another airplane about to take off, I picked up an e-mail from a priest friend who faced the situation while recovering from surgery of being told not to consume even the least amount of alcohol because of the post-op medication he was on. He asked about concelebrants being able to consume under one kind alone.
After a twitch of my pinky finger, I was able to call him back between flights… right now, that is… and give him an explanation and concrete reference which answered his question and situation perfectly.
It is a great part due to the contribution of readers that this was possible.
First, because there are so many of you, I keep this going.
Second, because so many of you are well-informed, I keep this going.
Third, because so many of you think before posting, I keep this going.
Fourth, because I too learn so much, I keep this going.
Thanks to you all. You helped me help a friend in a particular and important circumstance.
