My mind being a bit warped and prone to distractions can turn something so awesome and transcendent as receiving Holy Communion into a humorous reflection.
For example at Mass this week as I approached for Communion I noticed the Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion was quite short. My thought was “Bonus” I can make a profound bow at the same time I receive Communion on the tongue. If only we went back to only receiving on the tongue and also having very short priests, deacons and EMHC’s you could get everybody showing an external sign of reverence.
On another occasion of receiving Holy Communion the accident of bread got caught in my teeth. I was tempted to have to use a toothpick, but I would have felt too much like St. Longinus.
Oh well maybe one day my thoughts will be closer to the reverence that Holy Communion deserves.
