The Desiccation of Wit

Monday, April 17, 2006


Can someone provide me with either:
(a) a theologically sound repsonse to,
(b) a witty retort to, or
(c) a refutal of the premises underlying
the following question:

Can vegetarian Catholics eat communion wafers? Does it matter whether or not you intinct? (<--- new word I'm very proud to have learned yesterday at church (!) from the Rev. Doug Fisher, M.Div.)

Happy Easter to all
(P.S. It's still Passover)

enjoy your own misspelled karaoke room, where you can be as devoted to your wife as you want to be.

hmm, depends. Can a vegetarian eat a cow if said cow willingly sacrificed itself for his or her sins?

Another question: what happens to stale uneaten communion wafers and wine not used for intinction? Throwing them in the bin seems a bit ungrateful (this is my body that was sacrificed for you, and all that). Think there's a backroom full of disgraced priests forced to subsist on leftover Christ bits? Incidentally, that would be an excellent name for a breakfast cereal.

I know for Catholics, leftover wafers have to go into a receptacle called a tabernacle. And (perk!) any leftover wine has to be drunk by the priest. You can't just have Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ running around loose in wine/wafer form.
