first off… I’m sorry if any find this post offensive, and that I’ve acted in a disrespectful way…
Last May or so I was attending mass at the cathedral. (not my normal parish) My friend and I had to head out as soon as communion was over because we had a NET retreat to head off to & we were pushing it time wise as it was. Everything went fine and dandy until it was time to receive the Precious Blood. Apparently the cathedral fills their chalices to the brim, totally unlike my parish. I was first in line, and I accidentally spiller it *all over my shirt. *Without thinking I ran back into the bathroom (which drained into a sewer ) and washed off my shirt. I knew there was a ground sink in the sacristy, I just forgot in my rush.
The Blessed Sacrament It came out of my shirt fine (aside from the whole sewer issue). The problem now is that…
The stain from the Precious Blood is still in my cammi. I haven’t washed it at all since then. At first, in my messed up mind, I kind of liked the idea of having God physically present in my bedroom. (on the floor, eventually covered by a pile of clothes and later to be stuffed in a drawer I know, I’m really am sorry )
I fully intend to burn the shirt outside, as soon as I can muster up the courage to. I thought about washing it outside and draining the water into the ground, but the shirt would still have a stain, and I know its cool by the church, but it doesn’t cease to be the Blood of Christ and I wasn’t really comfortable with the idea.
I don’t know. Thoughts anyone? Is burning it the right thing to do? Are my actions sinful? Mortal? What should I do with the cammi until I’m able to burn it?
I’m really sorry to anyone whom I may have offended by my treatment of the Blessed Sacrament.
