I’m a curious 20 years old Catholic followers that is currently struggling due to a couple of questions that caused my faith to be unstable. Please guide my path; all opinions will be valued.
Catholic priests went through many hardship in order to be Ordinate with the Holy Anointing Oil. This, I believe, was the sole reasons why they can perform Mass and handle the Holy Eucharist by hand. My questions then is why does the general followers also have the rights to touch the Holy Eucharist with their hands? I know this is a popular discussion, nevertheless, this time, I want to explore an answer from an experienced point of view.
Most Catholic Church have their own set of envelope uniquely printed for each of its member’s household. Why is such thing necessary? Would not this only lead to prejudice?
I appreciated your time, may God blesses you.
