Once the Holy Eucharist is consumed it will, of course, find its way into the human digestive system.
At what point in the process does it stop becoming “holy”?
The reason I ask is, I am an usher at mass and one time one of the parishioners became very sick right after Communion and vomited. (We had to call EMS).
I know this sounds weird or gross, but should the vomited material (with the undigested Eucharist) be disposed of in a manner consistent Church rules on disposing of unused Eucharist wafers? Or can you just mop it up and send it down the drain?
(Yes, I know. Odd question.) :rolleyes:
