Absolutely correct. Do some actually believe that it’s better or more respectful to receive from a cleric?
Two thing I will add (again.) The more I think about it, the more I believe that EMsHC need a lot more training than most seem to receive – both technical on how to do carry out the ministry, and spiritual – what the ministry is all about, the Real Presence, etc.
There is also a need for a dress code, if not a simple/modest uniform. I still like the idea of a white top, black slacks/skirt and black shoes. It would be a good litmus test in a way. If anyone took issue with dressing modestly in order to help distribute communion, they are most surely a poor fit for the ministry.
