For your “Brick by Brick” file, from a reader:
I thought you might be interested to know about something that one of the altar boys did after Mass today – I know I was impressed!
We had a visiting priest at our parish celebrate the Ordinary Form today, and, during Communion, he dropped a consecrated host on the floor. The priest immediately picked up the host and gave it right back to the person who was receiving, and made no effort to not step in the area where the Sacred Host was dropped.
After Mass, I saw a server walk out of the sacristy with a purificator. He walked over to the spot where the Sacred Host was dropped and put the purificator over it. He then went and got another priest to purify the area.
I was overjoyed when I saw this! This server also knelt for communion!
WDTPRS kudos to the kid. Not so much for the first priest.
