This incident was disgusting. At a Church run by the Capucine Monks, we were lined up to receive Communion, on the hand standing of course. The priest was giving the Blessed Sacrament to a lady and he dropped it. He made the lady bend down, pick up the Host off the floor and consume it. I turned around returned to my seat and never received Communion again. I thought the Blessed Sacrament had to be picked up by the Priest and disposed of according to proper rules. I was close to leaving the Church then. All my time as a Roman Catholic I never received the Blessed Sacrament on my hand - only on my tongue. My mother also refused to receive the Blessed Sacrament on her hand.
As I do not believe in a Creator/God I am now Atheist. My study of Astrophysics is the reason.
