There was a story I heard where a little girl took the Most Sacred Body of Christ and didn't consume it.
This lady followed her to the little girls seat and told her to consume it. Was this wrong?
What is the correct protocol with Laity sees someone who didn't consume the host and is taking it to their seat.
I know it is forbidden because a Black Mass can be celebrated upon the Host, which is .... EVIL in all ways.
What should be done if a situation appears like this?
This exact situation occured at our mass, many years ago. My wife saw the girl flipping the Blessed Sacrament from hand to hand and then putting it in her pocket.
No one else saw this. My wife went after the girl, stopped her, told her to get the host out of her pocket, (the mother of this girl was dumb-founded as to what was happening until she saw her daughter pull the host out of her pocket), then my wife told her to put the host in her mouth- the girl did as she was told. Then my wife simply said, " don't do that again". The mother I'm sure had some choice words for her daughter when they got home.
Same situation about a year later with me this time. I saw a grown man take the host and start toward his pew. I went after him and said, " you need to consume the host". He did. But come to find out, he was mis-informed about taking communion to a sick person in the home.
It was explained to him and all was well.
When we see this, it is important to take action through the shortest and most expedient route possible at the time. We can't be wishy washy about it. Don't wait until next Sunday or even after mass. It may be too late.
