If they become insistent, permit the communicant to do so with your purificator serving as a paten underneath the chalice and their mouth.

26 More on self-intinction Intinction is the means of receiving Communion by dipping the host into the consecrated wine. It is not the preferred means of receiving Communion (receiving each form of Communion separately is preferred), and it cannot be performed by a layperson. Firstly, we receive Communion, and self-intinction puts us in the position of taking Communion. Secondly, the chalice is shared, and placing hands and fingers inside it increases the possibility of germs and the like in the chalice (did you know that studies have proven that our hands carry more germs than our mouths?). There is then the risk of the host breaking up and of the precious blood being spilt. Finally, those who receive Communion from the chalice only due to wheat allergies are placed at risk. Finally, the most important reason of all is that Jesus told us to “take this… and eat” and “take this… and drink.” In recognition of this profound call of Christ, and in consideration of others who share with us in Communion, We ask that you drink from the chalice, rather than dip your host into it.

36 TrueFalse True or False When serving communion: The Cup: the only words used are “The Blood of Christ”. The Host: the only words used are “The Body of Christ”.

37 WRONG

38 True Host Ministers The only words used are “The Body of Christ”. Give communicant time to respond “Amen”. Communicants may receive the Host in the hand or on the tongue. Should a child or adult approach with hands folded, the EM may give a simple verbal prayer aloud (“May God Bless You”). It is not advisable to touch the person or make the sign of the cross with a hand gesture. Giving a blessing (rather than just praying for the person) is a sacred function - performed by ordained ministers. Cup Ministers The only words used are “The Blood of Christ”. Give communicant time to respond “Amen”. Hand the chalice to the communicant. (Making sure to present with the purificator clear and away from the cup to avoid spillage).
