I'm just curious to ask (I mean to offend no one) does anyone else notice a certain relegation to a second tier of the Blood in the Latin Church? I couldn't help but notice this. Obviously in certain churches where intinction is practiced reception of the Blood is unavoidable and unproblematic, but I went to a Latin grammar school and high school and always heard things like the cup is dirty - unhealthy, etc. or someone's parents wouldn't permit their child to receive the Blood because it is alcoholic.
Does it not trouble anyone else that there is such scrutiny placed on the Drink of Life that has been given to us for the remission of sins and new life? Are these all anecdotal or have other people noticed a certain disrespect to the chalice?
