I wish I saw or thought of this thread before Easter.
My Church is huge and we don’t do the Precious Blood. So I am not used to it.
My mom’s Church is a very small, rural Church and they do, do it.
On Easter I went to my mom’s for our traditional family brunch, egg hunts, etc. I also went to her Church with my 5-year-old daughter (mom went to Vigil, so she didn’t join us). Now I drove 3 hours to get to her church and timed things perfectly… we walked right in the door as the bells started to ring. But being Easter, the place was packed. My daughter and I sat in the only available pew, the front pew (which was great because my daughter could see everything!)
Anyway, they did the Precious Blood and I really wanted to participate too. But being in the first row meant I didn’t get to watch to see how others really do it. So I winged it. I think I did it wrong (I did take a small sip, but I think I held the cup incorrectly… I held it with the lady, not on my own). But hey, what can you do.
I am going to watch this thread so I know what to do in the future. Great topic!
