I was recently on a retreat, and one of the priests there advised the EMHC’s to “pour out what was left on the ground” concerning the blood. I knew this was wrong, but I did not know how serious it might be until someone pointed out that there is a paragraph in Canon law exactly about this, #1367. It seems to say that a person who did this would be excommunicated. This bothers me quite a bit.
1.Is this basically true? Is the person who did this on retreat excommunicated?
2.Is pouring the blood down the sacrarium in the Church okay or prohibited the same way?
3.What should I do about this?
Thanks for any help.
