From blog member John Boyden
An argument against attempting to give Communion in the hand
I’d heard of this happening: people taking the Host home from papal Masses as a souvenir.

JB: Good God help us. This is an atrocity. In the five minutes I was watching the site, the bid jumped from $100 to $107. And it still has five days to go!! I hope some damn fool Catholic isn't going to try to reach the final bid of $2000 (!!) in order to "save" the Sanctissimum since this will only set a precedent for others who want to hold It 'ransom' for a price. But it looks like that may be the case since I can't imagine anyone who would spend $107 for a bottle opener, four stamps and a program. Utter blasphemy.

O Lord, my God and Saviour, Who, as Thou didst endure for our salvation the outrages of those who crucified Thee, so now endurest the irreverences of those who "discern Thee not" rather than withhold Thy Sacred Presence from our Altars; grant us Thy grace to bewail, with true sorrow of heart, the indignities committed against Thee; and with devout love to repair, as far as lies in our power, the many dishonours Thou still continuest to receive in this Adorable Mystery; Who livest and reignest, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
