ST. MATTHEW CHURCH Campbellsport Saturday 3:30 p.m.
Several months ago, someone asked me, “When I come up for Communion, do I have to receive from the cup?” After I explained to him that he did not, he responded, “Really? I always thought good Catholics received both and bad Catholics only received the host!” This was just one of many conversations I have had with Catholics who are confused about reception of Holy Communion.
The Church teaches definitively that in the Eucharist Jesus Christ is truly and substantially present, Body, Blood,
Soul, and Divinity, under the form of bread and under the form of wine. Both forms together offer a more amplified sign;
however, receiving both is not necessary. Quite understandably, some may think that Communion under both signs is always more appropriate because at the Last Supper, Christ gave the Apostles Himself under the form of bread and wine, but it is important to remember that the Mass is not merely a re-enactment of the Last Supper. (If it were, I should get kicked off stage for being a terrible actor!) Rather, initiated by Jesus at the Last Supper, the Mass is a liturgical action that has organically developed over a 2,000-year history whose theological content derives from our Lord’s passion, death, and resurrection.
Distributing the Eucharist only under the form of bread ensures that the Eucharist under the form of wine is never spilled. I have experienced such accidents at Masses more often than I would like to believe. The Church teaches that when “even a small danger exists” of such an accident happening, Communion under both forms “is to be completely
excluded” (Redemptionis Sacramentum, no. 101). Holy Communion under one form entirely prevents such mishaps and safeguards the sacredness of the Eucharist.
Offering Holy Communion under the form of bread alone also decreases the spread of germs. As you have been recently reminded at every Mass by listening to the soundtrack of coughing and sneezing, the cold season is well under way. From talking with parishioners about the distribution of Holy Communion, many are concerned that receiving the Eucharist from the distribution chalice puts them at risk to contract viruses. I share those concerns myself, especially given my proclivity toward getting sick. And because the purifying of vessels is permitted only for priests, deacons, and instituted acolytes, I do not have the option of avoiding these germs.
Technically speaking, the Bishop of the diocese has the ability to allow distribution of Holy Communion under both kinds. If he gives permission, then Communion can be distributed under both forms in parishes if it seems “appropriate to the priest to whom, as its own shepherd, a community has been entrusted.” (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no. 283).
With the strong support of the Prayer and Worship Committees from both parishes, I have decided that we will begin offering Holy Communion only under one form as the norm beginning the First Sunday of Advent, which is the beginning of the Liturgical Year. However, at the discretion of the Prayer and Worship Committees, Holy Communion may still be offered under both forms on certain Holy Days. After much prayer, consideration, and conversation, I believe distributing under one form on weekdays and most Sundays is a prudent decision. If you would like to speak with me directly about this change, please know that I would welcome a conversation with you.
I am hopeful that this change will provide the opportunity for everyone to focus more intensely on the sacred reality of the true Presence of Jesus at every Mass, especially at the moment of receiving the Eucharist. To receive the Eucharist under the form of bread is to receive the fullness of Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Sometimes we become so
established in our routines that this reality can easily escape us. I am also hopeful that less Communion stations will increase reverence toward the Eucharist (for example, always bowing or genuflecting anytime you are in front of or passing by the Eucharist). Increased reverence helps welcome the gift of deeper faith in the real Presence.
I want to acknowledge and thank the many Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion who have been very gracious in helping distribute the Body and Blood of our Lord so reverently and prayerfully. You will still be needed, but just with less frequency.
I pray this modification of HOW we receive does not distract us from what is most important, which is WHO we receive.
We should try not to be excessively focused on the visible sign of bread or wine, which merely serves to communicate the reality that it contains. In the end, whether we receive the Eucharist under one form or two forms is of minor importance.
What is of major importance is Jesus Christ, who continues to offer himself to us, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, in the Most Holy Eucharist.
In Christ, Father Strand

Preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism involves special instruction for the parents. Please call the parish office preferably before the child is born for more information. Baptisms occur on the 2nd Sunday of the month during the 9am Mass at St. Michael and on the 3rd Sunday of the month during the 11am Mass at Holy Trinity. Deacon Ralph Horner will provide private baptism ceremonies after Sunday Mass upon request. Baptism sponsors must be practicing Catholics who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation and are at least 16 years old. If married, they must be in a sacramental (valid) marriage. If two sponsors are chosen, one must be a man and the other a woman.
SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE

Church tradition holds that at a young age, Mary was presented to the Lord in the temple by her parents Joachim and Anna. It was there, in the temple, that Mary was dedicated to the Lord and made her vow of chastity. She lived and grew up in the temple until she was betrothed to Joseph.
