Once somebody asked in the ask-an-apologist section about what to do if they spilled the Holy Blood on their clothes, how to wash them. I think the reply was to soak it first and pour that water into the earth…
Now, what if it is not quite a spillage of the Blood, but let’s say I had just had the Eucharist and then a little later, when I may still have some on my lips, wiped my mouth with my T-Shirt or something like that?
Is that being too scrupulous, or is that a valid concern?
I don’t remember exactly what it was but last Sunday, I remember, I was in the bathroom after having received communion and somehow I felt a tiny part of the Eucharist might have come on my T-Shirt by something like that. Wasn’t sure though.
Just to be sure, I told myself, I should soak that part of the T-Shirt before I wash it and pour the water in the earth somewhere… Later in the week though I forgot and just put the T-Shirt with my regular laundry.
Would you mention this in confession now? Or would that be way too scrupulous? shrug:
