Okay, so I’m fully aware that this could just be scruples, but since this is a big issue I feel like making sure. I’d wait until I could talk to my confessor, but my next chance will be on my birthday. And, well, that’s not a day where I want to risk the chance of finding out I’m wrong. That would not be fun.
So, I just remembered that on the Easter Vigil, after receiving communion, I inspected my hands to make sure no fragments of the host were left. At first I didn’t see one, but after a while, I saw one white fragment. For some reason, I didn’t think it was a piece of the Eucharist (I did afterwards). So at that point, I intentionally rubbed my hands on my pants. My problem is that I’m not 100% sure what I was thinking, but I do know that it wasn’t my intent to desecrate the host. I was scared of that happening, and for that reason, I wanted to receive on the tongue, but with it being my first time I felt uncomfortable. So did I incur a latea sentenae excommunication (I was aware of the penalty at the time)?
