My grandmother is too weak and ill to go to Mass most of the time but she also feels awkward asking someone at her local parish to bring her the Holy Eucharist. I have been considering purchasing a pyx and bringing the Holy Eucharist to her (on Sundays at least).
But my question is this, is there anything I need to do beyond getting permission from my parish priest in order to bring the Holy Eucharist to someone who can’t attend Mass? I am not an EMHC, do I need to be one in order to do this?
Also, I’ve been looking online and it seems like every pyx I find is lined with plastic inside. Is this acceptable? Or should I continue searching until I find a pyx that is lined both inside and outside with a precious metal?
