Last week I helped a priest to administer holy communion to about 400 sick patients in Hospital. I was shocked to witness two particular situations which developed in front of my eyes.
**The first one **was when he was giving Holy Communion to a patient and a piece of the communion fell to the ground. The patient`s relative picked it up and asked the priest “Shall I receive it as holy communion?” He nodded and said yes.
**The second one ** was when we arrived near a confused female patient and the priest decided to give her Holy Communion. He asked a nurse to bring some water. He gave her holy communion by putting it on her tongue, touching her tongue in the process. In a place like a Hospital were there is disease such as Hepatitis etc. Can one do such things? I wish that somebody very responsible to answer me.
