..... and I usually get it from the priest. I sit towards the left side, so usually I wind up in the line the priest happens to be in. I've been attending mass since February, and I've been in RCIA since April. All those times I've been able to be in the line the priest is serving the Eucharist in.
So, my dilemma is this. This Sunday the priest pulled a switcharoo and took the other side. Now I'm sure he did that to be fair, so I have no ill will. What bothers me is when I got up front, with my arms arcross my chest, to the woman who was the Eucharistic Minister, she offered it to me anyway. Now, I politely shook my head and said that I was sorry, but I cannot yet recieve. The poor woman looked totally confused!
My consciense (and my soul) are at ease since I did not partake, thought that would have been a PRIME opportunity to do so. But I wonder, should I just shrug this off? Or should I report the incident since it seems the woman had no idea what to do?
God bless you all! :signofcross:
