My priest visited me during my recent hospital stay. While he was there, he did a sort of mini mass with me. Since I’m not confirmed, he didn’t anoint me with oil nor did I take communion. He just used some holy water and prayed with me, etc.
He had a little kit with him, small enough to fit in his inside jacket pocket. I don’t really remember too many details but it was small yet not tiny. I know he had a little purple stole, (little being not as long or wode, more like a wide satin ribbon).
Does anyone know what this kit is called? It had everything necessary to immediately receive me into the Church if I suddenly became very ill, but was also appropriate for visiting a shut-in parishioner like me. He told me he did have the wine, communion supplies, etc. in this little package. When I try to look it up, all I find are larger travel Mass kits, not this pocket sized one. He mentioned his was very inexpensive and not “the super nice type that some of the older priests have”. He is very traditional but just ordained for a year, so he doesn’t have a lot of these types of things.
Any suggestions? My RCIA class would like to give him a Thank you gift and we’re having a hard time because only two of us have seen the kit and neither of us remember it well enough.
Thank you for your help and if you think I’d get a better response in a different forum, please let me know
