**I was scolded today for placing the main host, for the celebrant, in the with the hosts for Mass.
The vessel used is actually a paten - which is defined as:
A saucer-like disk which holds the bread which becomes the Body of Christ.
The priest said the main host that will be used by the priest should be on an individual paten. I have never heard of this before and tried to find in the GIRM where this might be referenced.
Please let me know the citing. I have been a Sacristin for a long time and did not know if this is the case. BTW - I have been a sacristin for this priest before.
