Did she or didn’t she?

I know that you must be on the EDGE of your seats…did she or didn’t she partake of the Cup at mass this morning, what with all of this swine flu fever (ooooh, that’d be a good song – try it to the tune of”Pinball Wizard”!!!!) going around…
Can you believe that this stuff makes the front page of the newspaper????
She did. But she, or rather, I, (why am I referring to myself in the third person anyway?) was the first in line, so it was a non-decision. Actually, it was really pretty interesting. Our pastor came out and spoke about the topic before mass started…evidently he worked on the issue of the communal cup and contagion back in the 1970s. According to an NIH study, the risk was minimal. He did however ask that people refrain from receiving communion on the tongue. It was well done…very pastoral of him.
