I'm glad you brought this reminder up in its entirety. My only question to all this is what purpose does Intinction serve in this manner? If the Body in Blood of Christ can't be given out under both separate species under the form of consecrated Host and Wine, then it must be that the parish cannot afford the amount of wine needed to consecrate under both species for all the congregation.
There are many reasons why a parish might chose intinction and it doesn't mean the reasons are financial.
I used to attend daily Mass at a parish where intinction was the normal way of distributing Communion. The priest used an intinction set and no EMHCs. :thumbsup:
Using intinction requires a smaller amount of wine be consecrated. This may be desirable when the number of communicants varies greatly or is unpredictable.
Also, not every country has the indult for Communion in the hand. Intinction is a very effficient manner of disributing Communion under both species when everyone is already receiving on the tongue anyway.
And some priests and others just like the idea of consuming both species at the same time rather than sequencially.
