In fact it is sacrilegious!
I'll let his status updates speak for themselves.
My bishop/priest friends who regularly read the blog would need to comment on this...badly!
For Non-English speakers, here is the gist...
1. He took home a consecrated host after being reminded of the two priest to take "Jesus home" using a white cloth presumably either a corporal or purificator.
2. He kept it overnight at his home for his own vigil.
3. No one knows what he did to Him afterwards.
Redemptionis Sacramentum states:
[132.] No one may carry the Most Holy Eucharist to his or her home, or to any other place contrary to the norm of law. It should also be borne in mind that removing or retaining the consecrated species for a sacrilegious purpose or casting them away are graviora delicta, the absolution of which is reserved to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
Code of Canon Law:
Can. 935 No one is permitted to keep the Eucharist on one’s person or to carry it around, unless pastoral necessity urges it and the prescripts of the diocesan bishop are observed.
Can. 1367 A person who throws away the consecrated species or takes or retains them for a sacrilegious purpose incurs a latae sententiae excommunication reserved to the Apostolic See; moreover, a cleric can be punished with another penalty, not excluding dismissal from the clerical state.
Did he take the Host for sacrilegious purposes? We don't know. But this we do. HE TOOK HIM HOME!
This is against Church law as I have stated here and he must be made aware of what he has done.
I advise him to go see the Cardinal Archbishop of Manila, if he really lives within the territorial jurisdiction of the Archdiocese.
Whoever Fr. Jek and Fr. Gener are...you two are also in a lot of trouble!
And you, Fr. Diwa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the perfect example why we need to STOP COMMUNION IN THE HAND!!!
It has created more problems and scandal for the Church!
If you are pastorally sensitive as you always put it in your documents Fr. Diwa, then in God's name, you are bound by the duties and responsibilities of the Sacrament of Holy Orders conferred upon you, to act against this sacrilege!
STOP COMMUNION IN THE HAND!
