Since we've talked a lot about Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist and the distribution of communion, I thought you would be interested in the new policy released by the Diocese of Phoenix this week:Distribution of Communion Clicky
Of course people are really divided on the issue. I found out at a friends event where most of the people were fairly "liberal" (still hate the politicization of the term) Catholics who are displeased with the Bishop generally, so they were up in arms. I was surprised, but believe I owe my Bishop prayerful consideration of the change before I freak out about it. Besides, I know that lots of very orthodox thinkers agree with this interpretation of things.
The official reason for the change is not the use of EMEs, but I cannot help but see it as an underlying cause/piece of the puzzle.
